Great Company...not everybody was ethical

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Anchorage, AK

Pros- there was a great discount
- you get to meet a lot of really nice people
- high level of training (the company has started a leadership training program for new supervisors and managers that gives them an overview of the company and its values and expectations)
- if you work full-time, the health benefits are definitely superior to a lot of other companies

Cons- schedule is different from week to week and I've heard that now that employees get their schedules by email, sometimes they don't now what they are working for the next week until the Friday before.
- underpaid in comparison to other companies with the same workload

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't hire out of desperation. Make sure that you take the time to find the right people.
