    Pros

    Advancement for those willing and able to do their jobs correctly and efficiently.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful at times when a rush hits and your team and you are not meeting goals or expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees more, they have good ideas. Also make sure they are taken care of, your turnover rates and store performance directly depend on how well you treat your employees.

    Pros

    * Corporate really has a solid business model * Management was always fair and well trained * Fast paced environment and rarely dull- opportunities to work all store stations.

    Cons

    * Management expects allot out of you. Unless your on break, you better have your hands busy. * Pay was low. I think I made min. wage.

    Keep up the good work. I loved working for JITB Would have stayed longer for more pay.
