    Pros

    Decent pay. Some good people to work with.

    Cons

    Short term thinking dominates the company. They keep making a one size fits all for corporate decisions. The decision makers are not held responsilble. Store and district staff are blamed. There is a distinct adversarial relationship between the office and the field. Region Directors are generally better at politics than actual operations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field sometime. Stop running good people off.

    Pros

    They offered employment when I was laid off from my previous employer (in sales).

    Cons

    Takes over your life: constant schedule changes, poor communication starting from corporate and within each store, started a training system but still no continuity from store to store, insurance is sub-standard requiring the pay of $1500 out of pocket- on top of rather high weekly premiums- before paying for even a doctor visit (which is difficult when working for less than $10 per hour!)

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together before you sink the whole ship! We need to become more competitive or we will all lose out.
