Pros

Regular guests
Fellow workers
Discount on used product

Cons

Incompetent management
Raises only through promotion
Demotion/termination through questionable methods

Advice to Management

Start listening to the wage slaves in the field about the issues that the company has. Start treating your associates like you really appreciate them and what they do, and quit blaming them for all your failures in leadership. Start cutting at the top, not the bottom. Company issues have little to do with the basic store associate, they have lots to do with the incompetent people who populate jobs from DM up. Go back to basics like Best Service in Town.
