    Pros

    Get to meet ppl from all over the world

    Cons

    Unfortunately they rather hire some Yankee doodle from a random comany to be manager, then to hire there deticated hard working employees to promote as managers. Can't move up in the company at all. There is so much gossip from the managers, bickering and argumein between every one. They pay is unfair and the employeesecond are so over worked that they ate physicaly getting sick. Managers are stressed put and fustrated. We need more staffing and more fleet.

    Advice to Management

    Stop over working your employees and appreciate them and maybe they would stick around. Create some kind of program to help us grow in the company.

    Pros

    Great cars and great trucks

    Cons

    No benefits, no potential career growth, it feels like a dead end. Computers literally crash at least once a day and don't get me started on the printers. when you call support to help you with anything they will not help and put you on hold for an hour. The stores are understaffed while customer service is out sourced. They don't research compition before raising prices so sometimes are more than double the prices of competitors that within walking distance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing customer service and put some of the support people in he stores. The stores are under staffed and there is no point in having a support that can't do anything. We don't even call the support line anymore.

    Competitive salary and definitely room for growth if you put in the time. Opportunity for advancement is there if you take the stress levels for years and years.

    Hours are ridiculous, inconsistent schedule, company car is great but you have to switch it out every week and it is mostly just used for driving to and from work. Extremely long vacation blackout periods

    Pros

    Good training
    Exposure to P&L
    Exposure to forecasting and strategic planning.

    Cons

    Anyone working in ops should be prepared to be set up to fail. After years of doing more with less, the current Senior Leadership team has stripped operations of their ability to reasonably deliver on customer expectations. From cutting staff, to non-competitive compensation packages prompting top talent to walk, to new initiatives that fly in the face of the customer experience. This company is all about the dollar, there is no room for humanity here.

    Advice to Management

    Anyone who can drive Deshon out would be a hero.
