Long days/hours, low pay, manual labor, great employees.

Store Manager (Former Employee)

ProsIt is tough to get a job there so the employees are motivated and intelligent for the most part. They encourage relationship building with customers so you get to know a lot of interesting people. Good community outreach programs (food drives, events, support the troops). Only promote from within so decent advancement opportunities

ConsAfter three to six months of training you become a salaried manager with a very low percent commission on your store. Depending on size of store they start you at (usually small) you only make $12-$14/hour. 44 scheduled hours/week usually ends up being more around 48-50 and this is expected not voluntary this includes almost every weekend for at least two days and closing (midnight) shifts. Also be prepared to do lots of manual labor (lawn mowing, window cleaning, physical store cleanings/ resets twice a year, changing lightbulbs/ballasts on rickety ladders).

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more realistic about the expectations of your managers for the money you are paying them and be more considerate of work/life balance for your managers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
