    Pros

    Company has made allot of improvements at the corporate level, hopefully not too late.

    Cons

    Company no longer wants Managers who can "think outside the box" and drive profiable sales, they have now shifted the culture to hands off managers who can needlessly babble over the radio and micro manage associates to the point where they will walk out.

  2. Great place to work, watch out for employee reduction(s)

    Pros

    Never boring, many departments to crosstrain into, fast paced and interesting.

    Cons

    Nationwide layoff of over 4000 managers, six weeks prior to Christmas in 2004 to meet stockholder income predictions for that year. Then the company sponsors Nascar in early 2005. Priorities?

    Advice to Management

    Way too many incoming trucks of new inventory per week to handle properly under labor guidelines.
