Pros

Good beginning job for someone entering the work force. If you stay long enough, at least two years, you are eligible for insurance coverage.

Cons

Very few employees receive full time hours; makes it difficult to bank enough hours for benefits. The management (Corporate Level and Store Manager) harass employees constantly--treating them like they are idiots. Expected to perform 8 hours of work in 6 hours or less. Union regs make it hard to get rid of bad employees.

Advice to Management

A kind word goes a long way--constantly harassing employees is bad for morale--most people leave because of the crappy treatment.

    Pros

    Received a pay check every week.

    Cons

    District Manager had no personality, it's all about who you know. Poor training. Two faced environment. Impossible bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Get a good training program, teach district managers to be equal with managers. Far too many audits
