    Pros

    Decentralized work place. You can run your business how you want to. Pay is alright for a starter job. They do a good amount of training.

    Cons

    Decentralized work place. Your boss can run his business how he wants to and if you get a new boss who is incompetent there is nothing you can do.

    This is a 30/30/30 company. They higher people under 30, pay them less then 30, and they stay around for less then 30 months on average.

    Advice to Management

    Get more employees at the branch level

    Was once great, but corporate and regional management changes have caused more micro-management and less commission

    A ton of freedom

    Cons

    Micro-managed by district and regional managers
    Less pay over time
    No raises

    Advice to Management

    Be careful how you treat the people in the stores. You are losing good people to other companies.
