    Pros

    Somewhat Flexible with hours
    Good Customer Service Experience
    Money Management Skills
    Coworkers are fun to work with and interesting people

    Cons

    Management often feels like they're using their employees for personal gain rather than for the good of the company or the employee
    Didn't keep word in terms of promotion and pay raises
    Not understanding of personal obligations
    Easy to lose purpose and stop caring about what you are doing

    Advice to Management

    Form a relationship with the people that work for you, keep your word and your employees will want to work harder for you

  2. Do not recommend this company for anyone wanting stability.

    Pros

    Fair to middling salary.Somewhat flexible hours.

    Cons

    Company is on the downturn,not a place to go fo a long term career.There is much management change in progress(recently cut 500 positions).Expect company to continue to lay off people or close locations.

    Advice to Management

    Recently cut upper positions not enought to save this company.Most of the people downsized to positions of lesser authority and the same ones who are guilty of running this company down.Be more ruthless and cut out the old fluff.
