Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsDecent pay/benefits, pretty decent staff

ConsLong hours; GM was very unprofessional;, reviews are unfair and very one-sided; very discouraging getting paid less for more work; bonus plan is absolutely ridiculous and almost impossible to achieve, especially in smaller markets; wore me down

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
