Pros

The company offers a good base,opportunity for bonuses, PTO and benefits. There is some freedom to set your own daily schedule.

Cons

No ability to make managerial decisions, you become a corporate robot. There is an expectation to work from 7 am to 6 pm and 2 hours of computer work after hours. The company does not value it's employees and has a retention rate of 40%. The company cuts corners in every aspect of the business in order to drive the stock price no matter what the impact is to the employee or the customer

Advice to Management

Take time to invest and listen to your employees. An empolyee that loves their job and their employeer will be more impactful to your business than the employee that is not respected and and feels disposable

    Pros

    Stable company, financially profitable, good benefits, accrued time off.

    Cons

    Extremely low 11$/hr pay for extensive duties expected, no time to use time off, flavor of the month type management with constantly changing expectations, extremely micromanaged and dictated on all levels. No real feedback or compromise allowed from employees. 40% employee turnover ratio for company. No room to grow within company if successful.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback and performance improvement ideas from the ground level workers. Maintain positive environment that encourages and rewards success monetarily. Don't demand unrealistic sales goals. Shareholders' wishes should be balanced with employee needs and reality.

    No advancement from the property manager position, inadequate pay and OK benefits, some job security.

    Pros

    PS operates with minimal labor hours and it continues to add locations so there is some job security from that viewpoint. If you need the secondary job in your family, need to live in a company residence, need a flexible schedule or enjoy the resident manager lifestyle the property manager or relief manager positions would be good for you. There is a 401K and group and other medical paid by the employee.

    Cons

    The job is more than challenging as requirements for how the PM operates including scripts is changing virtually daily from many in management.The property(s) you work can make a huge difference in working conditions. Generally speaking there is no additional pay for working an old no climate control property as oppossed to a modern, climate controlled and therefore much cleaner property. The size of the property and the level of activity can make a huge difference in working conditions.The property is a big influence as to whether or not or how much bonus money you make. Everyone is paid virtually the same no matter which property they work or how long they have worked for PS. There is no consideration for loyalty except additional paid time off after 5 and ten years. The group medical has essentialy a 4k deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Change operations so Corporate, Division VP, Regional VP, Assistant Regional Manager, Senior District Manager and the District Manager are not all instructing what and how to do the job at the same time, often conflicting.Change is needed but employees are tired of the continous deluge. Emphasize as part of the business culture the positive restraint of power that comes with authority amoung management within a region.
