      Squandered Potential Leads to Frustrating Experiences

      Pros

      Work from home due to Covid has become a standard with no need to return to the office unless you choose to.

      Cons

      Leadership is severely lacking in understanding what it takes to get the job done. Upper management does not respect or appreciate the people in the trenches doing the work and think everything should be quick and easy and doesn't understand that things take real effort. Favoritism is a major problem and results in 90% of the employees being left without a chance to actually succeed. Hardest workers who are most dedicated are only rewarded with more responsibilities and more pressure without any adjustment to job description or compensation. Promotions are handed out like candy to executives or people directly involved in sales but the rest of us are treated like trash.

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, Not a very difficult job

      Cons

      They don't want more than 2 full time employees for each store but almost everyone works 30-40 hours a week as part time. Pay starts out less than almost everywhere around and you get a very small pay raise per year. And they usually make one person put up truck the 2nd day of doing it.
