    Pros

    Pay isn't bad, family-owned, profit sharing, safety-conscious company

    Cons

    Lots of hoops to jump through to get the job done, paperwork on top of paperwork. Huge disconnect between the needs of coworkers and the wants of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions seem to be given almost exclusively based on seniority rather than qualifications.

    Pros

    Great pay
    Good benefits
    Profit sharing at the end of the year

    Cons

    8/9/10 hour shifts with no breaks
    Constantly on the move, no time to stop and rest
    With a million things to do, it's hard to get everything done
    Too much expected of us employees
    Favoritism
    Inconsistent schedule
    Working too many days in a row (up to 8)
    Don't know what to expect coming into work, i.e. could be a total mess with nothing done, and I'm expected to clean everything up plus do my work

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If people aren't happy, things don't get done.

    Zietlow family is awesome. Stable job, always going to be around. Can move up in company without schooling but will take a few years.

    Pros

    Good money (if you get hours)
    Sometimes can get good people to work with.
    Cant get bored theres much to do.
    Good benefits if your able to get them
    Usually can get the schedule you'll want

    Cons

    Leaders usually constantly complain
    Poor training.
    Some shady manager business can happen.
    Can get stuck at register for days
    If your not a shift leader your pretty much a nobody.

    Advice to Management

    Change your sick call in policy. Your leaders will guilt trip sick people into coming in and then the sick people get everyone else sick, so instead of struggling for a couple days maybe your struggling for about a month because that ONE person gets the whole staff sick. Pay more attention to store functionality than just sales. Your sales greatly depends on it.

    Pros

    -Owners are superb people
    -Great pay
    -Excellent benefits
    -Very people oriented

    Cons

    Can get boring. Not as fast paced as other retail jobs. It's more often good than bad, but the job can get boring. There is always something to do, but it might be mindless work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    The scheduling was very flexible with my college courses. When arriving at work, you had very specific guidelines for what was expected of you - there was no standing around wondering what to do.

    Cons

    The customers could be exceptionally needy and ask you to do things like change a tire or add oil to their cars. Other than that, the work could get a little repetitive, but overall not bad.
