    Pros

    The company has good health and 401K benefits, if you can get a full time position.

    Cons

    The company is mostly interested in part time employees and ultimately doesn't care about employee welfare. Low wages. No benefits for part time employees. The available hours are based on an unusually small percentage of sales dollars; 5.5% is considered very high. Schedules and hours are not consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the store level employees. Your current business practices aren't conducive to to long term employee retention and you can't run the company without them.

    Pros

    There are no Pro's about working for this company. It is a horrible Corporate Environment and the culture will never change, until the owner is willing to make it change.

    Cons

    The old saying Sh*t rolls down hill is true. It starts at the top and doesn't stop rolling until the bottom. This company does not care about its employees, it does not care how they feel. All this company cares about is lining the pockets of the upper executives and they don't care who they have to step on or destroy to do it. Good people walk away from this company feeling defeated and worthless. Upper management ego's are out of control and they are allowed to belittle anyone who disagrees with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your blinders off and really look at what you are doing to the employees. There is no loyalty to the company from the employees because there is no loyalty from the company to the employees.
