    Pros

    Fun, fast paced environment, Benefits, pay, and other compensation is nice.

    Cons

    DO NOT TAKE THIS JOB IF YOU ARE NOT SINGLE AND WITHOUT KIDS. I am not one of those managers who can not delegate and schedule tasks. But if you want to be successful (and i have), you have to do endless hours of extras to survive. it is not worth it if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    You cut payrol to save profit, and then pile on extra tasks to increase sales for profit. This all then HAS to fall on the one salary position, the SM.


  2. Truly a great experience all around; there was no limit or opportunity or potential!

    Pros

    Limitless opportunity
    Excellent Benefits and Compensation
    Flexible hours & Schedule
    Good Pay
    Great Environment: Coworkers, Supervisors and Customers
    Fun Product
    Never Boring

    Cons

    Company did become rather large so "Dynamic-Change" became tough
    Christmas season is a BEAR
    Schedule/hours is not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the flow of information as Vertical as possible. What works "in theory" does not always fly with customers.
    Keep an eye out for Industry-Changes with Digital Distribution. Company is currently too dependent on "Pre-played" market.
