Pros

The competitive retail environment is invigorating if your into competition and beating out your peers. The opportunity to meet interesting clients and grow long lasting relationships benefits the most.

Cons

Management is sometimes a pain, as in their motive behind certain changes the company takes, a particular example is the recent pricing assistance. Furthermore compensation is unbalanced, as commission is based off growth and multiple factors that sometimes are quite hard to change but are counterproductive when focusing on growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adjust pay and return the freedom that employees had originally in making the correct financial decisions without penalizing them for growing their sales.

    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
