Understaffed, but quick advancement if desired

Customer Service Lead (Current Employee)
Glendale, AZ

ProsWithin one year of working with the company, I received five promotions, all accompanied by raises. Job is easy to develop a routine with, and on the job training is available in most cases.

ConsStores severely understaffed, causing strain to few employees who remain being forced to pick up excess slack. In most cases, a promotion to a higher position actually means you will be performing duties of old position and current position, because your former position will not be filled.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn who your dead weight is, and when to drop them. Positions in the stores are so few as it is, do not let them continue to be filled by unmotivated workers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
