GREAT PLACE TO WORK

District Manager (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

ProsThere is excellent support from our Corporate Partners. Human Resources, Training, Store Operations, Recruiting & Staffing all work to ensure that the field organization is well-run. The pay for all positions is very good, and every person on the team can supplement their income either with bonus or spiff, based on their contribution. The people that I work with are second to none: The Company attracts people who are not just proficient at what they do, but it also attracts good people with good values. The benefits are good and retail associates appreciate that they can roll their PTO from year to year rather than a "use it or lose it" structure. Overall it is an exciting place to be, and with the growth of the company it is an exciting time to be here.

ConsIt is no place for rookies or low limit performers. The Company moves at a very rapid pace, and you must be able to keep up. Some of the employees with a lot of years of seniority seem to have a sense of entitlement and resent any effort to improve the processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for the visionary leadership! Eric Smidt, the CEO has a passion that is amazing and he is moving the Company in the right direction.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
