Pros

Peers were amazing to work with, but like Starbucks they are loosing their talent fast.

Cons

Upper Management was a joke. The red head ran the place the the Marine Corp. Sorry, but talking down to people does not boost morale. If you sell a lot they are your friend, if you don't, your job is at risk.

Advice to Management

They know it all, so why bother. They better change their core competancies and management strategies to raise retention rate. You are losing your talent! Why?

    Pros

    The pay is good. Not too much micro managing and the discount is great as well. Ever changing technology makes the experience fresh most of the time.

    Cons

    Pressure to sell during slow hours of the day. If you do not like working holidays then this may be a rough job for you

    Advice to Management

    Create more incentives for employees to sell more as individuals as opposed to group challenges.
