    Pros

    Great leadership at the Divisional level and above. Good benefits if you are at the corporate level or above (District Manager or above).

    Cons

    Only 2 paid holidays for Store Managers yet corporate and DM's get at least 7. Salaried Store Managers have to take 6 vacation days to get a full week off vs. office and DM's only have to take 5. Safety in stores in urban markets is lacking and store teams are frequently robbed due to this. Company LP mantra is that "60% or more of theft is caused by management or team members stealing." Most stores have single coverage for too long into the day due to payroll budgets (no security, no one to relieve you for bathroom breaks, etc.). Store team members are not put through a proper background check and criminals with police records have been hired which could put the whole team at risk. HR & Team Relations are consistently inconsistent on how to handle discipline / terminations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on technology to get the company/stores into the 21st century. Invest in the people so that they will care, turnover will go down, and theft will decrease. Get payroll off of $ on to activity based labor so the stores are not penalized when a Store Manager takes a vacation week, a vacation day, or a sick day.
