    Pros

    It was only a summer internship but I learned a lot and truly felt like an equal and not an "intern" per day

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say, also wasn't there long enough to experience it

    Advice to Management

    Maybe better opportunities for a full time position

    Pros

    In 29+ years of the company history there was not a single layoff, even during hardest times (2009). People work there for many years. It is well-structured and quality-minded.
    The President has gone long way from his garage in 1985 to more than 1,250 employees (and growing); he deserves admiration.

    Cons

    Not too open socially. A little more open atmosphere would feel better, but, after all, this is a business, not a country club, so no hard feelings.
    HR is not very people-friendly, but, again, this is nothing compared to real job security we have here.

    Advice to Management

    All things considered, a great place to work.

    Pros

    Provide great training and development opportunities if interested in moving up in company. I've always had an easy time getting days off and moving the schedule around when needed.

    Cons

    Software and computer systems used not up to date on processing speed and knowledge support. Retail support center not very willing to actually do their job without acting like you did something wrong in the first place.

    Pros

    The weekly pay, the employees, the environment, the hours are amazing. Before I started I read the horror stories of some people and second guessed even working there but I'm telling you everyone is different. I had a totally different experience from most of the people on here. You have to give it a try for yourself. Not every job is a success story but half the stuff written on here are pure lies. There's no 3 limit item to push on customers. You just recommend and leave it at that !

    Cons

    The taxes that they take out of your check. No overtime. Also the Weekly changes to the schedule
