    Pros

    Decent training program, some interesting experiences.

    Cons

    Inconsistent and very low pay for the hours you put in. Capital improvements to the building along with routine maintenence will negatively affect your paycheck. Complicated pay structure with goals that are not consistently attainable. Work week 60-75 hours, with mandatory show ups on weekend nights. Work every single holiday and weekend. They routinely break state laws by taking shortages(cash or food) out of your pay. Break OSHA laws for a safe work environment. Upper management usually poorly educated, stuck in a management style from the 1960's. Weekly meetings where you are personally berated and embarassed in front of your collegues (especially if you're a woman). This list could encompass a dictionary so I will stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your job close as you would be irrelevent in any other company in the United States.

    Current Employee - Unit Manager

    Pros

    stock options, 24 days of a year

    Cons

    drawer change, you manage people who are not the brightest bulb in the box, you get 10% of the profit of the store but 100% of all lost. pay structure changes a lot mostly so its harder for you to hit bonus numbers so the company can keep more money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your unit managers more money, you get 15.4 of the units profit before bonus, unit manager should have assistant managers or shift manager not have all the responsilblity themselves for what they are paid
