Outward a great company to its customers and patients; inward, a terrible company to its employees.

Store Manager (Current Employee)

ProsDecent career track, excellent training for employees, commitment to community, values diversity

ConsCareer track of late can be confusing, especially for Front End management. Limited (if an) job security for Assistant Managers, and an unclear future for Store Managers. Rewiring the company's roles in order to save a few bucks on payroll. Good luck trying to have a family and also balance with work, especially during the holidays. Managers are required to work from Halloween through New Years without any holiday leave or vacation, except for the main holidays themselves, and are required to work 6 days per week during that period.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide transparency to your Managers. It won't spark or incite a riot or mass exodus if you will give them enough time to prepare for any future layoffs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
