    Pros

    Great customer base, good management. Flexible

    Cons

    Only seasonal. For a six week position entirely too sales goal oriented, lacking any reward compensation for crew. Only upper level management.

    If you're not a member of the elusive "Executive Committie" you are nobody.

    Pros

    For people looking for seasonal work to boost their income, working at a kiosk during the Christmas season is great. They seem to work around people's schedules. Full time employment.. not so great.

    Cons

    The arrogance of the executive committee isdeplorable. If you are not a sports loving guy... forget about it!!!! No teamwork, no seeking of opinions, poor communication. They just do what they think is best. They give the illusion that they care but in the end, they do what they want... or better yet... what Mark Rodriguez wants. It's all about the bonus for the EC. Everyone else doesn't matter and according to EC "everyone should be happy to have a job in this market." They're really milking that one...........

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your people with respect that they deserve. Also, quit grading them like cattle and showing off the 'prize winners" and rubbing peoples faces in it. You have a good group of people left for the most part but you rubbish them over & over and openly too. How professional is that? You abuse the fact that Toledo employment sucks right now and treat them like crap. When you do try to be nice to the employees / community, you call in the press to cover it....lol. Stop with the favortism for certain employees.
