  1.  

    Overall a transitional job. Not one to keep long term. Don't expect much more than a pay check.

    I worked at FL Roberts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a manager the health insurance is pretty good. Slow months create some great time to catch up on the place and keep it running. They also throw a pretty good bash once a year.

    Cons

    The pay is deplorable. Often ideas get swept under the rug or recreated as an idea for upper management. You'll get ignored frequently until it becomes enough of an eyesore or problem that someone recognizes it.
    Like I said, it's a transitional job. Not one you'd want to consider a long-term career. It's very rare that there are promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge and appreciate your staff if you're going to provide financial shortcomings. Or pay your managers better to continue the treatment you give them.

    I worked at FL Roberts part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There was little to no oversight if you simply did your job, the commission money wasn't bad (though I heard after I left it decreased significantly), and the job was relatively easy to do. If you work hard and can get yourself noticed by the GM, there is an opportunity to become an assistant manager or manager, but the money for that isn't great and you work 50 hour weeks at a minimum

    Cons

    If you made one little mistake, you could end up with the GM breathing down your neck (even on a Sunday morning!) or it could be completely ignored; it was very inconsistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reducing the commission payments; it is hard enough to get someone to work hard for you without destroying the incentives

    Pros

    Company has been around for a long time. Get dental and health insurance. Employees get free car washes and double reward points.

    Cons

    99% are cons. Management treat you with disrespect. You have absolutely no job security! Upper management make you feel and also let you know verbally that you mean nothing and that you are replaceable at any time. Your hard work is unnoticed while anything you might do wrong will be announced. You feel like you are walking on eggshells every day you come into work. Upper management (corporate office shareholders) are very unfriendly, rude, unappreciative, and are the worse group of people to work for and with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like PEOPLE not like animals!!!

    Pros

    The only one I can think of (and yes there is only one) are the double points they give employees on the rewards cards.

    Cons

    They keep everyone at a part time status so they don't have to give benefits and suggest that we go on Mass Health! Make us work 8 to 10 hour shifts alone in stores with no breaks! They spy on us through the security camera to make sure we are working at all times and reprimand us when we try to take a break! I was actually yelled at for eating dinner during my 8 hour shift!  

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees with a little respect!
