Pros

Great salary and advancement opportunity, excellent benefits

Cons

You have to know how to network, wait in line for quite some time for the chance to advance, and the HR liasons are supposed to be there to help you but you never hear from them and they are terrible at follow up.....and if you do figure out the system, you will quite possibly be overlooked for someone coming in from the outside.

Advice to Management

Specific career plans, stop bringing in outside people in lieu of promoting from within.

    Pros

    Coworkers were pleasant for the most part. Everyone below the managers seemed to understand that working there was complete crap.

    Cons

    Low pay, inconsistent hours, inconsiderate management, inconvenient customer and coupon policies.

  2. A great job if you are not too concerned about money
