I have been working at Pride Stations & Stores full-time (More than 10 years)
Have worked for pride for 11 years. Compensation generous. Like " run store as if you owned it" philosophy. Helps me focus on priorities. Store running well? Minimal interference from corporate. Off track? If you communicate clearly areas of concern... Corporate will help fix.
Have been accused by store management (not corporate) of e.g. breaking "a lot of product" during transport. Not true. Denied. Nothing more came of it but the accusatory tone was off putting.
Advice to Management
Keep talking to rank and file.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pride Stations & Stores (Springfield, MA) in March 2017.
Very easy and straight forwArd loved the great personality of hiring manager. Good scheduling and fast call backs. Great easy process and training. Easy questions and very to the point. Good staff clean and bright offices.
