    Pros

    Easy commission sales job. Your title as a manager did not define your actual job. You were excepted to be able to dable in a little of everything. Very young company with great access to corporate depending on our home store location.

    Cons

    Work life balance was not carefully thought of. Little done to commend achievements and distribute work evenly. Nepotism at it's best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the non-defined job descriptions do help to learn a little bit of everything, placing more structure in the role of each level of manager would ensure that work is getting distributed fairly.

    Pros

    Fun and great working environment. You really get into the commission based atmosphere.The discounts are great and worthwhile. Overall recommended.

    Cons

    Scheduling is an issue and really depends on sales goals and how many employees are currently working there at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flexibility for scheduling and planned vacations. No last minute schedule fixes. Overall great place and atmosphere but management needs to seek work and life balance for all
