    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, a great company to work for that rewards dedication and hard work. Will hire almost anybody, unless you have tattoos. Great job, growing company with lots of opportunity for employment.

    Cons

    Occasionally you will get a difficult manager, but the company is growing in quality of employees rapidly.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice here, other than to be sure you treat drivers and in-shoppers (who are paid less than you) with equality and respect, especially in regards to religious background and preference.

    Pros

    This is a fast paced work environment with friendly people and great customers. I would highly recommend working here. Drivers also do very well.

    Cons

    The corporation is full of air heads that have made their living praising the infallible Jimmy, while ignoring the advice of those lowly subjects beneath their notice. Hopefully they will someday listen to those on the ground because they have something great here.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely, Jimmy needs to pull an undercover boss stunt and see what is going on. The management insists on consistency, yet changes everything about our jobs on a weekly basis.
