Pros

Meet new people on daily basis. Able to send customers home happy. Closed on Sundays. Keeps a person very busy during their scheduled hours. Somewhat flexible for needs. Get one day off during the week, generally either Tuesday or Thursday. Some local travel for deliveries on island.

Cons

Long hours and mandatory work on Friday, Saturday and Sundayy. Each has their own responsiblity. Each person is expected to work all aspects of the company, however sometimes that is not always the case. Some people are hired assistant manager, where they aren't knowledgable on all aspects of company.

Advice to Management

Very hard to do for a store mananger. It's easier to advance to an Assistant Manager then to the store manager. Some people are hired as an assistant and they don't don't have to climb the ladder.

    Pros

    Great pay, Good Benefits, stock options for District Managers and above, lots of opportunity for advancement if your willing too move.

    Cons

    Long hours, 5 1/2 day work week for District Managers and above.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the 5 1/2 day work week, require DM's and above to work more during the week, 7am to 6pm and they would happily do that then work even an hour on Saturdays. Work/Life balance.

    Pros

    pay is so and so, 10 hours overtime ,instead of working 2 jobs, every sunday off

    Cons

    raises not good , never a saturday off, i missed out a lot of quality time with my child because of that, expectations are unrealistic with this bad economy,

    Advice to Management

    we deserve more than 18 cents per raise , especially us latinos that speak 2 languages, i now we deserve better than that, stop being ungrateful ,we do spend more time making you rich than spending time with our family
