Pros

Good people working in the stores. Good healthcare. Can be fun if working in the right environment with good people.

Cons

Loooong hours 10 to 11 hour days 50% of the time by yourself. I'm not sure how this is legal, cannot close for a 30 minute lunch even when working 11 hours with no other person. The stores are open all but 3 days out of the year. Poor middle management. On days with meetings your are on the clock for 12-14 hours. After 10 years managing different locations I had enough, the day I turned my key in was one of the best day in my life...I got my life back.

Advice to Management

Show your store level employees more respect stop the constant threatening of their jobs. No matter how low a volume a store is it should never be one person working 10-11 hour days. The only people that brings in revenue for the company are The SALES STAFF so treat them better.

    Pros

    There are no pros at this company trainers are negative and abusive and they play favorites they are arrogant and are above you the potential employee.

    Cons

    You're happy that you have found a job. They put you thru a 4 week intense training program always always threatening your employment hardly ever positive, always stressing the negative while threatening your job. They conduct multiple hiring and training classes yearly. You may ask why? Very few people are successful after being placed into a store, they fire people like throwing away trash. NEXT! Do not apply at this company if you do you will regret it terribly.
