    Pros

    They will train you to take on the role of a Store Manager and beyond if you that is a career goal you express to them.

    Cons

    Not exactly the most professional place of employment. Most of the clientele wouldn't be considered upstanding citizens by the general population.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store Manager at the Paducah KY location is without a doubt a key asset to the company. Very good at what he does.

    Pros

    * Very relaxed dress code.
    * Great opportunity to a slacker who just wants to collect a paycheck.
    * No real leadership to discipline those who do not do what they are supposed to do.

    Cons

    * No career progression/promotions available.
    * Work not recognized; often told they could hire someone off the street to do my job.
    * Consistently left out on an island to plan, organize and execute a high priority project, while upper management would be working from home.
    * Employees not respected.
    * Pay was unrealistic with industry standards.
    * Turnover in the corporate office is ridiculous.
    * More directors/vice presidents then real time workers (more chiefs not enough Indians)
    * Upper management did not have the technical abilities to make technical decisions; alot of programs used were new in 1980.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A real hard look with the upper management needs to be done.
