Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Costa Mesa, CA

ProsEasy
Flexible Schedule
Good employee discount
Multiple family companies to transfer to
Simple breakdown of management levels
Good second job
Learning opportunities

ConsEasy to feel trapped there
Almost impossible to advance career
Company going broke for obvious reasons
Old rules and practices that no longer work in todays economy or business practices

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't beat around the bush with your employees we are smart enough to figure out what is going on. Employees are not paid near enough.

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