Pros

Good benefits if you are fulltime.

Cons

Horrible hours including weekends and nights. You are always on-call to fill jobs. You feel guilty for only paying temp help $7.25 an hour for extremly hard work! Company does NOT care about their employees, in management you are treated horrible with very high expectations. Work with some homeless temps that are sometimes desparate for work and often on drugs and alcohol. Horrible and unprofessional district management that do not follow the rules they hold you accountable for in northern ATL! Stay away! Work anywhere else besides LR.

Advice to Management

Accountability needs to start with you! If you are holding your staff to strict rules and guidelines then make sure you can follow them yourself first.

    Pros

    Good, competent coworkers since most positions are not entry-level
    Job stability in a growing industry
    When the company allows autonomy at the branch level, the job is very enjoyable and satisfying
    Managers are allowed freedom with office expenses and reimbursed quickly

    Cons

    Hourly employees have the responsibilities of management, without the pay of management
    Lots of poorly-thought-out directives from senior management that will make your job harder
    Very little chance of promotion unless A) you're branch manager is leaving, or B) you're willing to relocate
    Company promotes best sales performers to management and then saddles them with non-sales responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Your boardroom ideas rarely translate well to the branch level; maybe test new policies at the few locations that need it before blanketing the entire region/district
    Remember that lots of factors create a successful branch, not simply the sales numbers
