Thought I'd be there forever, but they didn't want to use my knowledge or skills.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

ProsThe mission and the associates were the motivating factors for myself.

ConsThe more dedicated you are to their mission, and following corporate standards, the more likely you are to be fired. Investigations should not be finalized based on hearsay, or by people who are not going to gather all the facts. Use investigating tools.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
