    Pros

    Very professional team. Great work environment. Management is relaxed as long as you are performing well. Great salary.

    Cons

    Office politics. Lots of red tape. Behind the times in latest technology and afraid to make changes.

    Advice to Management

    Value your contingent staff as much as you do you full time staff.

    Pros

    Team environment, benefits, and my location had a really hard working General Manager. There were some good incentives such as Store Ambassador with a cash reward, and we could also nominate each other for doing something "above and beyond" where there'd be a drawing and we'd get movie tickets or a similar prize. I also liked the fact we used radios with earpieces, it made for a more interesting day.

    Cons

    I disliked the pressure from corporate.. Whenever the regional manager would, visit he'd stress everybody out and obviously didn't work as hard as we did.. and got way more pay! But that's the working world.

    Advice to Management

    I can't stand working for someone who sits and doesn't pitch in when the lowest paid employees are the ones breaking their nuts.. My location's store management wasn't like that at all, and my GM Mark worked harder than anybody. Good job, store management in my book ;)

    Regional and corporate, I know you guys have a business to run, but I really feel like a lot of these stores would have higher performance if they felt like they were better taken care of and felt more appreciated. I could have stuck around longer!
