Pros

You work with good, hardworking people and are able to teach and train and make an impact on their growth and the business. The employees are very eager to do a good job and want to learn more and do better. The store and the store management can be active in the small communities we serve.

Cons

The business is very top down and doesn't take feedback from the field. Labor dollar constraints create a enviroment that is too lean.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work toward a better life/work balance for the DMs and SMs.

    Pros

    Being a full-time student will not damage your chances for employment. The tasks are simple and very easy to perform.

    Cons

    Having an adequate number of employees on hand is a rarity. There are many places were a lack of simple organization in management can cause problems in the ability for employees to perform simple day-to-day tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stress your managers to better train and inform your employees.
