    Pros

    Able to move up quickly. Went from assistant manager to district manager in five years. Decent benefits. Great training from upper management

    Cons

    Long hours. Holidays were spent here. No respect for loyalty. Just recently bought out by a larger company and many changes are coming.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is horrible. When someone is loyal to you please be aware that you should respect that. I grew a lot and I thank you for the opportunity you gave me. I watched a lot of people lose their jobs.

    Pros

    Working with the public, pay pretty well, Benefits are good

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations of employees sometimes. As a management employee you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Their main concern are the numbers not the relationship with staff.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff. Treat them like they are people.

    Pros

    room for growth, many locations, flexible hours and you can go to school and work at a location. in a lot of cities.

    Cons

    not everyone works under the same rules, single coverage, robberies, not a lot of training. you are on your own, basically

    Advice to Management

    managers and district managers should at least know as much as the employees about how to operate a register. Different rules for different employees. low morale. Our old district manager had an interest in our stores and she kept the team in good spirits. We don't have anyone at this time.
