    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, promotions can happen quickly if you are in the "in crowd".

    Cons

    General Mgr. at the branch I worked at had zero experience at managing an entire store. The almighty dollar is king within this company. You are treated like number. If you do not come out of the gate producing like seasoned veterans you immediately become a burden no matter the reason (death in family and personal illness are not excuses for not hitting the monthly quotas) The anonymous hotline to report inner-company issues is a joke, I was "let go" two days after filing a complaint via this "help line", simply told that since I worked in a "right to work state" they did not need to offer any reason for my termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the management is simple. You have a lot of hard working, dedicated people supporting your company. Treat them with respect, understand they have an existence outside of that time clock. Better train your general managers so they can help their/your employees reach their max potential. This could be a wonderful place to work if the upper management had more respect for its employees and a basic understanding on how to treat people. I honestly can say if I wouldn't have been terminated, I would have quit on my own due to the nasty attitude of those in charge. Remember, you would not be where you are if it wasn't for those people you treat like dirt.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
