    Pros

    Great company culture. You can feel it not only as an employee, but even as a customer. They care about their employees and make you feel valued to work there.

    Cons

    Communication often takes a backseat. Most expectations are outlined in rigorous detail, but when things change in the store (specials, methods of performance, etc.), this is not made clear to the employees which has sometimes gotten me in trouble with customers and with my managers.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is up to date on everything going on if you are unsure whether or not they have received this information.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, flexible hours, opportunities to move up within the company. In my opinion it's a great place to start working as a young high school student because of the things I mentioned above.

    Cons

    Your experience will depend on your managers. I was fortunate to have a majority of good managers, but on days where it was only the bad ones there I could tell that my job was not as enjoyable.

  7. Positive atmosphere and an overall great company to work for.

    Pros

    The company itself is growing so they are always looking for leaders to move up into a management position. The pay is competitive and the benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    Typical cons such as working with employees who are lackadaisical. Work hard though and you will be acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring just to hire. Sometime employee references aren't always the best way to hire.
