Ok company to grow your legs, tough place to stay long term

District Manager (Current Employee)

ProsExtremely fast growing company. Good place to grow your legs in management in terms of position and responsibility. Decent salary, pretty good benefits, company laptop/cellphone in majority of mid-level positions. Salaries for those not in mid-level management (ie managers) are not that good in comparison to others in industry when you calculate the work load that our managers have.

ConsTerrible work-life balance. No clear ruebric given for promotions. Only one location for retail division (El Dorado, AR), which is a tough sell. Company operates very thin on everything labor to overall budgeting. High expectations/work loads, but limited resources to work with.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork-life balance is crucial and it does in most circumstane takes money to make money. Can't be cheap with your most critical people - front line employees. Need work on salaries or expand labor to offer better assistance to getting job done.

The SM will lie… Advice to Senior Management: Run the register for a week, get to know the area and the customers that visit your store, and appreciate the cashiers who do all… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
