    Pros

    Some locations have a great culture. Relaxed dress code. Decent sick and vacation policies. Advancement is possible.

    Cons

    Limited bonus potential and some locations are not team players. To advance, you must be willing to transfer to the corporate office. Pay seems lower than competitors. As with most large companies, innovation can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate managers of all teams. Great leaders produce great results. Poor leaders produce excuses.

    Great company to work for and benefits with good pay.

    Cons

    The location i worked had politics going on were if you were an hard working employee you didnt get rewarded but if lied on your reports and fudged your numbers and just lied they loved you. Seem to me the HR and Location Manager were in on things they protected the bad employees and punished the good ones guess thats why they have a high turnover of Employee's.

    Pros

    Great personalities, strong sales talent, relaxed atmosphere at the office

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Never seen operations so inefficient and unwilling to take care of the customer. Everyone is always frustrated that they can't get the help they need. Management always making things too complicated and throwing people under the bus for anything under the sun. Unrealistic expectations, no desire to take care of the customers. It takes them 2 weeks to make a five minute decision.

    Advice to Management

    Let the reps take care of their customers! Funny how back when the microscpe wasn't on giving credits or expenses how well the company thrived and everyone made money. Now things are so tight everyone is afraid of asking to take care of their customer.

    Pros

    This company has great pay (for those who can keep up with production and meet the productivity goals) that gets directly deposited into my bank account every week + the competitive benefits for myself and family keep me there.

    Cons

    Always too much drama and not enough action. Management would get positive results when they start promoting experienced and well-qualified leaders from within its own department that have proven success over and over again. Therefore, a definite con would be no opportunity to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Commercial front load supervisor...

    "the possibilities are endless...but to truly understand and appreciate the game, you would have to play it."

    Pros

    have nothing good to say. i get a check every week. that's about it.

    Cons

    They dim your light here, instead of making it shine brighter. they smash that light bulb on the floor and step all over it to make sure that it will NEVER try to light again.
     i have applied to multiple positions within the company and each and every time, I do not get it. No one explains why, nor the tell you what you can do to qualify.

    Pros

    There's no pros. This company gets worse everyday. Everyone plays the blame game with everyone. This place needs a new management

    Cons

    They only care about there profit and not about the people that are doing the harder work. You don't get much time with your family and work long hours. A lot of two face people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a manager if you can't do it. Your not god and don't change thing when you sit in that seat you make it worse.

    Pros

    They do cook outs for the employees, but they could nix that and given us a better raise.
    401K company contribution. Vacation package is nice.

    Cons

    Very long hours I never got home before 7:00pm by the time I left mgmt. was long gone. Management only cares about themselves will leave you sitting there when your stuck finishing a job so they can go home. Pay sucks. My last raise was .12cent an hour and that was consider good! A lot of stress for a very low paying job. And just for the record I didn't get fired I left for a better paying position with a GREAT company.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people, stop treating them like children and look at them as professionals. Stop being so greedy with raises and only worry about your bonus at the end of the year. The GM is out of touch with what is really going on. He only looks at the numbers never really seeing the whole picture. Its all about being #1 with him.
