Pros

The mission. The business experience. The operations experience. What you can learn by paying attention to day-to-day operations of the company.

Cons

Poor pay. Unflexible schedules. Uncooperative management. Disproportionate African American employment. Little room for advancement. Promotions/Raises only happen on a yearly basis.

Advice to Management

The management is not open to ideas or new ways to do things. Most management is so concerned with the bottom line and profits that they miss ideas or new methods that would actually be MORE efficient, and produce higher profits.

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros with this company! Do not even think about working there as they will destroy your spirit and sense of worth!

    Cons

    Allow harassment to fester and go out of control. Allows discrimination to thrive! Hire managers who are unqualified!

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to hire qualified managers and make sure they have morals and ethics!

    Pros

    got a job minimum wage. long hours

    Cons

    the industry does not stick to its core values, beliefs, they talk to you as if you were beneath them when you ask about hiring practices. to get a job is like doing insider trading with the stock market. the San Antonio area is very bad about job selections always the inside first over and over again, and whats so bad about it its for the same job over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    give some intense training on the hiring practices. teach the supervisors not to be untruthful about the jobs and their postings.
