    I worked at Ellwood Thompson's full-time

    Pros

    Health Insurance and other benefits are decent. Mostly lenient time off policy. Paid day off for your birthday ever year.

    Cons

    Very unclean work environment (mold/dripping sewage in common areas was the biggest issue.) Upper management is a total mess. A lot of the "values" are just for show (with a lot of lying to the customers.)

    I have been working at Ellwood Thompson's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good insurance. Mostly really good people to work with. Works with school schedules really well. Pto for both full time and part time. Lower level staff are all pretty much family and a tight bit community all of there own.

    Cons

    Gross, falling apart store, equipment fails constantly. Hard to get a decent raise. Scheduled reviews but they are always running behind. This company does not reward loyalty because they will just get someone else and pay them less. Policies always changing. Never really know what's going on. The owner is an absolutely loony bin. He asks ridiculous things that never make sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward hard working people with decent raises. People that have been there forever need to be thanked occasionally. Raise moral because it is extraordinarily bad now.
