Pros

This company doesn't close stores
Bonus structure is good if you are in a good store with potential to grow
The company's stock is out the roof and growing!!!!!
If managers could be managers and not every role because of no staffing, the job would be fantastic!!!!!

Cons

The work load is ridiculous given the size of staff
Lead Generation of 30 calls minimum is hard to do some weeks and faked by most employees
Only 4 days closed during the year and sundays are an absolute joke to be open for.
The district manager's added rules are inconsistent across districts and at times break labor laws.

Advice to Management

Everyone knows who you are going to choose for an advancement before it even post on a job board, because you call the individual and tell them to post for the job, then word gets around the district. Isn't that called favoritism and also the reason why there are people in critical positions that are doing a terrible job? Hire the best person with no bias, not the person that will make the easiest chain of backfilling positions and you will have no "chinks in the chain".
