    Pros

    Good benefits, fun atmosphere, alot of great co workers.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Drastic cut of cashiers hours so a bigger turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Toss The Good Ole Boy Network, Hire D.M's and RGM's that "don't" set the tone of what "not" to do, (lie, manipulate, show extreme favoritism for those that brown nose.

    Pros

    They need to revamp their procedures of opening and have enough manpower to complete your task

    Cons

    Have to work to many hours and have so few employees that you have to be the one fill in if someone calls out

    Advice to Management

    Look at your Managers, who is a manager and a customer representative and who is just there in the position to draw a check and don't care about customers or the employees. There is way to much turn over in the company

    Pros

    Excellent salary, good benefits, you live very close to work, no travel time.

    Cons

    El Dorado, AR (Corporate Headquarters), small town thinking, women don't really count there. They talk the talk but don't walk the walk.

    Pros

    Full-time benefits are good with vacation and medical/optical/dental insurance offered as well as profit sharing/stock options and/or 401k. There are some very excellent people to work with.

    Cons

    There are different rules for different people. The expectations vary on where you work and who you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page. Do not allow District/Zone/Regional managers to have different rules for different people.

  9. Stable, fun, rewarding, great pay.

    Pros

    Great pay, get to know everyone in the city, learn about tobacco, and help meet customer desires. It's easy enough to work your way higher in the company.

    Cons

    If you have an incompetent manager, it can cause some stress. There will always be ignorant customers. Getting everything done can require working off the clock.

    Advice to Management

    25 hours a week means I need a second job.

  10. So So....upper management really could careless about operations employees.
