    Pros

    Stable company with great coworkers. Flexible work schedule and provides the opportunity for easy relocation

    Cons

    A lot of emphasis on getting customers to sign up for their credit card. Not always able to work a full 40 hour workweek.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing! Try to keep the bathrooms clean and keep employees informed about all new changes to create less confusion.

    Pros

    Stable company with many great learning and training opportunities. Fast growing business provides the opportunity for easy relocation and training and in some cases provides promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Many store managers are essentially deadweight. They're tenured, 15+ years in position in some cases, and ineffective at running their business. Upper management, such as District Management, is often reluctant to hold them accountable for their performance and as a result they often remain in their positions until they retire or opt to leave on their own accord. This makes promotion of Assistants to the Store Manager position hard as Store Manager positions aren't frequently available as a result.
