    Pros

    The Team atmosphere really made coming to work easier. After work, we would go out and have fun together. Management sometimes joined us.

    Cons

    It didn't seem like we were there to sell products, but to sell services and the performance plans. I understand that was the high profits, but Supervisors and managers drilled those metrics all day, every day.

    Pros

    Employee discount isn't bad if you need batteries

    Cons

    Total disconnect between the store and corporate level, vast pay disparity between employees and management, and utter disregard for the happiness of employees or customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the entire district management structure, raise salaries in the stores, and give the store manager some actual managerial duties.
