    Pros

    Great flexibility in scheduling, if you know how to sell it's a very easy job.

    Cons

    As stated in title, you never know what to expect. If your Store Manager, District Manager or Regional Manager is having a great day then you will too, however if they're having a horrible day they will make a big deal about every little thing. Unfortunately your opinion doesn't matter to anyone above you so you have to deal with everyday's surprises.

    Advice to Management

    To change the company, some attention has to be placed on front line employees. An plan to change is only as good as the employee deploying the plan.
