    Pros

    They are very flexible with your school schedule, and are willing to make accommodations for it. Everyone is extremely nice. They train you a little and then let you do your thing.
    Discounts are fun.

    Cons

    Employees do all the work while managers just sit around and scratch their butts.
    Always pushing you to sell warranty as if it was commission.
    Some managers are useless.
    Hard to move up in the company.
    If you want to move up you have to be best friends with the GM otherwise you wont ever move up. Its all a politics game and usually those of which speak the same language get promoted faster.

    Advice to Management

    if you schedule a manager in the morning to open along side another associate, you should have a 3rd associate in since the manager wont ever sell or help when it gets busy.
