I love working with people and helping the customers. sometimes I will be having a bad day and its my customers who cheer me up. if you do your job and you don't call in or miss a lot of work you can move up fairly quickly

Cons

the pay isn't very good but neither is the economy. and they don't like you to get overtime

Advice to Management

I wish there was an insentive program something we could work towards

    It is a good company to work for but I feel they don't care about the lower management.

    Pros

    I love the customers and the employees that are in my store. I like the improvements they are making but it seems that they are just to save themselves a buck, not make our jobs easier or more effective.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Not enough time to spend with family and friends. With only 1 day off a week its hard to even get day to day things done. I am salary so they can use us whenever they want. They keep cutting our hours for our hourly employees and still expect us to get more done but with less help.

    Advice to Management

    quit being so cheap and give us some hours to take care of our stores and our customers.

    Pros

    Working with great customers, promotions are very possible although limited, would be a good first job for customer service

    Cons

    Inconsistent pay across all employees, bad mouthing once a person leaves the company, hostile environment,

    Advice to Management

    Look at who your strongest people are and get rid of the weak links! Watch the video cameras and really see who is doing the work and get rid of those who are slacking.
