Pros

Good training and decent benefits. Great hours.

Cons

Very little support for branch level. Stores are expected to run with only two or three employees while still maintaining 100+ outside sales calls each week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More part-time support for the branch

    Pros

    Good money if you're put in good branch and you work hard.

    Cons

    Management at the branch level, DMs, are lazy and steal the credit for the OSPs and GMs hard work growing the stores. Salaries are terrible so your income depends heavily on your commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more oversight and accountability for the DMs.
