Pros

They'll hire almost anyone. Solid company that almost never has layoffs. They have great benefits. The hourly pay is better at start than minimum wage.They care about safety. They focus on employee retention.I've been there 8 years and some of my female coworkers have been there 20, 30, or even 40.

Cons

They'll hire almost anyone. Very little room for advancement and if you don't advance you won't make more than a few dollars more an hour than when you start as the years go by. This isn't a long term single income household type job. You could get repetitive strain injury from making the same motions day after day.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the lazy bad employees and treat the good employees better.

    Pros

    Benefits, sales force, other sales people, no weekends, sales training

    Cons

    Management is a joke well over a dozen people in a short period of time have left sales side. Sales and service huge disconnect. If your looking to get great sales training and then coast until a real opportunity comes along then climb on board. 41k the best case for TSR.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house this branch has been a loser for 3 years.

    Pros

    - Fair Benefits
    - Vacation - Just aren't allowed to take it

    Cons

    - The company chewed up employees in such a way that there was a revolving door amongest the managers. The managers that they hired had no chance of being successful because the circumstances were so desperate.
    - Averaged 55 hours a week for three years.

    Advice to Management

    - This is the only company that I have observed in the last 15 years that has an environment that invited unionization.
    - Management style is very militarialistic. It was insulting to think that we were going to follow bad decision makin and worse, unethical business acumen.
