Pros

Work independently during the day w/o having to be micro managed! Great hours!! They don't start until 12 and you're done early enough in the evening to have a life!!! This has been the perfect balance transitioning into a career right after school!! They offer personal financing seminars and training on how to budget after school. This has been extremely helpful as a recent college grad!! They people here are amazing!! Everyone is positive and upbeat which makes it easy to WANT to come in every day!!

Cons

Some people say there is no "work life balance". Well I say get better with your time!! You have every morning to get things done during normal business hours and you're off at night to do whatever you want!!

Advice to Management

Thanks for now offering benefits!

    Pros

    none. It's all smoke and mirrors. It's a marketing pitch.

    Cons

    too many to list.. they've built this business on deceiving young professionals..

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management

    Actually look at the resume know what people you are hiring.... stop praying on recent college graduates who are desprite,these are people who just got bills for the first time in thier life they cant afford to work on just commision , pay people for thier time even if its just minimum wage cause your hours are rediculous those are 10 hour shift ..... 11 to 9 is outragous ... Its not about people beingLazy its about the principle ... Its almost slavery .... With those hours how do you considere yourself to have a life ....
