Pros

Great family environment. Very relaxed so long as all job duties are completed on time.

Cons

Uncertainty with the schedule, they do not notify you if there are changes. The hiring/training process is similar to a boot-camp rather than being engaging and friendly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more selective about the employees hired. Too many employees request off too often.

    Pros

    Depending on your district manager you have a lot of control over your store. You get experience in many different areas of management since they expect you to do everything.

    Cons

    No breaks, long hours, overworked. You don't get paid much and after a year and a half on the job I found out that managers don't get raises. They didn't tell me this at the beginning but alluded to the fact that it would be possible. The only way to make more money is to go to a different store. I moved twice and got tired of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get control of your regional and district managers. Each district is ran like a separate company. I wanted to work for the company I saw in the monthly promo videos, not the one I felt like my district manager had created.
