    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good compensation plans (as of 2007), spiffs and vendor sponsored reward programs. some store-level managment (that has been there a while) actually know their stuff.

    Cons

    Expect to get railroaded by management, expect 54H work week though they will tell you they want you to spend time with your family. Expect long-time employee favorites to be able to get away with more than you can. Expect 'errors' in your commission statements. Expect fixed metrics to keep you down. Expect NO loyalty dispite tenure or efforts. Expect a very high turnaround.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your management/purchasing team from failed companies. listen more to your employees fighting it out at ground level. 3-4 years left tops.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is OK. Decent employee discount.

    Cons

    Lack of overall direction. Poor job security, employees can lose their job at any time so the company can save a buck.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for.
