    Pros

    Good people to work with the pay is ok but the gm of my store is starting to contradict what they told us in training about the payplan

    Cons

    Seems like the gm and the company have different views, try to do the "automation way" and you are doing it wrong .

    Advice to Management

    If your going to have a corporate way of doing things and training them you should enforce your stores to actually do it. Or simply remove the rules.
