lots of work to get ahead, promotions hard to come. Not based necessarily on performance, about who you know and impress

Pros

opportunity to relocate, most of the team members are friendly

Cons

long hours, pay isn't always "equal" for jobs that are being performed. Haven't had a raise in a couple of years, other than a cost of living increase for a relocation. Even though it was a bigger store and more people to manage, and in a state of disaster upon my arrival from the previous person who was terminated.

Advice to Management

work life balance, non-existent if you want to see a promotion. home office team is out of touch with the realities of actually working in a store on a day to day basis. Take a look at the attendance policy, far to lenient.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Very satisfying work when project are available. Great management teams. Previous years credit given to boost vacation time. Very competitive salary with good sign on bonus.

    Cons

    Minimal raises and bonus payouts. Promotional opportunities very limited without relocation. Corporate strategy changes created uncertainty in job security. Poor insurance benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Create a growth plan with Management Trainee's that shows promotional opportunities and salary increase to reduce turnover.
