    Pros

    The hours are flexable , The benefits are ok.and the challange of the industry that is constantly changing and progressing

    Cons

    Upper management has lost sight of their goal.They do not take care of their store employees anymore.Are more worried about keeping up with the competition rather than leading the competition.And they do not listen at all to the employees at the store level on how to improve their sales.We are the ones in the trenches every day and try and take care of the customer(without them we close our doors).Cutting hours and putting most of the staff to part time is not the way to lead the industry.Every area is different you cannot have a cookie cutter mentality any more.adapt to your area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open Your eyes and ears and listen to the employee at the store level.That is where the business starts.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Working with the best
    Great hours of operation
    Great HR support
    Great training in store.

    Cons

    Not enough people in the stores, or drivers, to accomplish our goal of being in the lead of this industry. By starving our stores of good people and drivers, cutting payroll ,we have asked our competition(s), to help us with walk in needs/sales, and asked their help to take care of all our delivery charge accounts needs, and are rewarding them with our lost sales, and, have asked them to help take up the slack of delivery so we do not have to, which shows we are on a flatline. They have now jumped at the chance to grab all those lost sales, which would have paid for our employees to be there to provide the best service in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to knowing we are untouchable, we are the big guns, and quit going candy.
    Clean nice stores planogramed has always been in our favor, great, we are almost there, we needed that, now get back to business and do what we do best. Yes we have some little good things, link, wpc, etc... going on with dis, dat, and de uter ting. We have lost our sight on being the best. Through the eyes of store level is where we can bring back the win in our future to become the company that holds the right to be the best, and not let the competition chomp away at us for too much longer.
