Fun Environment great job for the right person.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFun environment, high energy, room for growth if you are willing to relocate to one of the 60 stores throughout the U.S.

ConsIn operations, extremely long hour expected, Management styles vary from store to store. Culture has been lost and corporatized over the past recent years. More focus on training and development is needed.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your biggest asset, your employees by way of training and support- communication throughout the stores is extremely lacking which does not provide the tools to set your employees and management up for success.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
