    Pros

    A great job to work if you need to work on your communication skills. This job will teach you stress and energy management.

    The cons are the speed you will have to be able to maintain to withstand the rush every day.
    The everyday drama, you will need to learn to overlook.

    Advice to Management

    This was a great job. The problem is overlooked favoritism or even unrecognized favoritism

    Pros

    Stable company with decent benefits, decent pay and good operating hours. Overall a good place to work and there is a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Too much constant change that is not needed. Upper management is hit or miss depending on your area. The training is terrible though you will learn much more once in your position.

    Pros

    Two consecutive off days, free meals while working, full benefits, amazing training program.

    Cons

    As the low many on the management totem pole (in my area), you get stuck with straight closing shifts. I accepted the position in this company because of the varied shifts and work life balance. Three months into my employment, the VP of our region decided to place the lowest of Assistant Managers (each store typically has 2) on straight closing shifts. For some this was a pro, for most this was a con.
    You are severely micromanaged.
    You are threatened with write-ups at every turn.
    For the sake of saving labor dollars, you, as the closing manager are expected to run on bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Give your managers room to breathe and do their jobs. I would also like to note below that Steve Davis is no longer the CEO as of 7/21/215 when this review is written, but whilst he was CEO I approved.
