    Current Employee - General Manager
    Current Employee - General Manager

    Pros

    Working hard for the right supervisor and you can move up to General Manager. Hourly associates can work relatively easy & move up quickly.

    Cons

    Regardless of your results, if you are not liked by your District Manager, you are marked for termination. You must drink the coolaid & be liked by your immediate supervisors, if not, start looking, because you will either be marked as non-promotable or they will look for any opportunity to terminate your employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into a mirror and ask yourself, have you treated everyone fair & consistant or just the folks you like?
