Pros

Great sense of community, varied work environment, forward-thinking company with great training-honestly only left because of the hours; I needed to have Sundays off consistently

Cons

retail hours, certain departments have too much of a sink or swim mentality, location was often understaffed leading to stress and poor work performance

    Pros

    Working with cars. Drive different cars. Indoor and outdoor work.

    Cons

    Working outside when it is too hot or too cold or too wet.
    Micromanaging managements.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is ok but when it is done too much, then it shows that management does not trust the employees. If you cannot trust your employees, then you need to revamp the selection/hiring process.

  2. Great part time income
