    Pros

    Excellent benefits and stocks continue to grow as company continues to gain market share.Upper management loyal and competent.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations with huge increased yearly budgets for stores and reps. "Work more with less" is the new trend as workload has increased with corporate initiatives and decrease in help.

    Advice to Management

    The weekly Lead Generation calls are a joke. Monthly sales blitzes to customers that actually have potential to purchase should be the ideal way to grow our business. Sixty cold calls per week is a waste of time and focus should be on ASM as well as Manager getting out of store for face to face calls.

    Pros

    Better than average part time pay and generally they were fairly flexible with my school schedule, I also got a company matched 401k and paid vacation time each year. Overall a pretty good job.

    Cons

    Very small staff in each store makes it difficult to call out sick if you need to as it places a great strain on those who are working. Also for the pay they expect a lot more out of you than most and you only get one raise a year which isn't much. I have worked for four years and I started at $10.50 and I just now got a decent raise to 11.80 because I took on more reasonability and became a key holder. They really work you to the bone when you are on the lower tier.

    Advice to Management

    Empower lower level employees and have friendlier work environments.
