Overall pleasant.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Huachuca City, AZ

ProsHad wonderful co-workers and in store Management.

ConsOther area stores in a negative competition with each other. I.E. Making bad reports against one another to GM. GM expects you to work no matter your health level. I once had to work with double walking pneumonia and ear infections.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't underestimate your 3rd key and other CSR's, they will go to the ends of the earth to help you if you are a Team leader, not a 'do as I say not as I do' type. Be easy going while still expecting top notch. And understand your employee's have a life at home, that is ultimately why they are working with you.
