    Pros

    Fast pace environment, great team atmosphere, performance evaluations regularly

    Cons

    Decent managers but poor leaders, inconsistent follow up, unrealistic expectations, glorfied cashier. Spend 90% of your time cleaning showers cleaning restrooms and running register than expected to get 10+ hours of work between inventory control counts, freight orders, and weekly corporate emails completed. Not enough hours and help. Must drop what your doing to help QSR or shop but never anyone to call when you have 20 people in line or toilet clogged and flooding store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to you team members and assistant managers. reconsider following your company pledge and valuing your employees more than a dollar

    Pros

    no pros, like my coworkers though

    Cons

    low pay, one break in hours, not 15 minutes like other retail companies, when taking break there is no break room so you cannot get away from customers for you 30 minute lunch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company makes millions and most of your team member workers are on food stamps and housing assistance, I bet the Love family has plenty while we scrounge. I am paying my rent late and can't afford groceries

    Pros

    Good pay. Room for advancement. Stock options are good if store performs.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Long shifts. Policies and procedures change constantly. One bad visit from corporate can mean your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time training your District leadership. Growth is hard to handle, but just because someone was a good store manager does not make them a good leader. More focus needs to be placed on training for ALL associates.
