    Pros

    Easy to get hired. They're desperate and have openings all the time.

    Cons

    Horrible management past the store level. The understanding of how the KPIs factor into goals is nonexistent. You can be a top sales person and not make your bonus. He middle management are gatekeepers the stifle any communication between the stores and senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the store level people better. These are the people that will make or break the business. Work on retaining your top performing managers. Turn the DMs that can't keep their managers happy. Loved the job (past tense) still love the company and my former team but couldn't stay.
