    Pros

    Great pay. Lots of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Hard, physical work. Extremely long hours. Hit and miss management.

    Advice to Management

    Well-educated managers will not work for quasi-illiterate district and regional managers.


  2. Stressed day-to-day environment

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive, benefits are ok, job security if you perform well.

    Cons

    Not enough help, cost cutting is too rapid which is contributing to low morale and increased complaints from customers about poor service. Also, opportunities to move up out of service clerk positions are harder to come by now, and even if you make it to the Shift Lead position, you will be used and abused, and have little chance of moving up past that.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is going on in each individual store, instead of assuming every store in a particular "region" is the same. Do more frequent anonymous surveys to get a feel for employee morale and how you could increase it.
