Pros

The pay is decent compared to other similar jobs in Charleston area and the job can be fun at times.

Cons

The management style is poor and, in some cases, disrespectful. Things are very unorganized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As with all managers, they should listen to staff feedback and provide constructive criticism to employees.

    Pros

    Since the management is never around taking time off for doctors appointments or family emergencies, etc, is very easy to do.

    Cons

    The glass ceiling is about 2" above your head. Advancement is basically an unreal expectation unless you own the business. After 5 years my salary is a pittance, especially after bringing in over $400K in under 2 years at my newest location. This is a franchise, so the owners (who had to have over $200K in liquid assets to even be considered for buying the franchise) basically only care about their own bottom lines. I've never had a boss who understood that a basic living wage is needed, nor ever had a regularly scheduled review done on time, and a raise is generally $0.50 ever year or year and a half.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just with the corporate offices would be more involved. But then again, they make their 8% off of the top of all sales that go through the shop, and beyond that they don't really care for the employees; only the shop owners and technical problems.

    Lack of Professionalism. Too many flaws. Hinders income ability. This is a franchise. South Hills.

    Pros

    Family first. No-brainer product. Nothing new/no trade secrets.

    Cons

    Order takers think it's NOT FAIR if a seasoned professional gets the 'big accounts'. "It's not fair" is the motto if a new person, in a new role does well or is treated differently at all. Bait and Switch. Critcism for minorities, gender, disabilities and religion daily. Disgusting, filthy environment where employees are constantly sick. Too many mistakes on orders. Owners afraid to change status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should have a firmer grasp on the chaos that is happening in the franchise.
