ProsLove of animals and animal well being
Diverse People

ConsInsane expectations at times
Long hours at times for corporate visits-obnoxious
Bullying and sometimes intimidating general managers
Anti- pursuing education if you're an ASM or higher
Some general managers expect you to break your back when they are hardly in their own stores sometimes

Be fairer in expectations
