    Pros

    I've been with Kangaroo Express for 2 years now. They have treated me very well and I have gotten a couple of decent raises. We've got a good store team with very little turnover. I just earned my college degree and I am using this position as a springboard for a District Manager Trainee role. If you are surrounded by a good crew of associates,, it is a good job. I am planning on making it a career.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard to find good help.

    Advice to Management

    Add a tuition reimbursement program.


  2. Overworked and underpaid!

    Pros

    Good dental and eye insurance. Hours are quite flexible with other life responsibilities. Always get 40 hours without a doubt! Immediate management/store manager great to work with.

    Cons

    Limited benefit plan health insurance sucks. Upper management such as District Manager needs some lessons in how to talk to employees. Puts you down and talks horribly to you in front of other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide positive comments not just negative ones. Provide more comprehensive training and expectations for managers.

    Your regular customers make you feel at home, like having another family.

    Cons

    Opportunity to advance was put on a freeze. The GM was not a very good one, never took accountability for anything

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees feel like they are important and the work that they do.
