Be honest, "transparent" and up front about promotion opportunities.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Company vehicle, fuel paid for (Employee required to pay $125.00 a month however)
    - Positive/supportive peers (You essentially learn from them)
    - Above-average pay for an entry-level position

    Cons

    - Managers in positions incongruent with ability/interpersonal skills
    - Indifferent and/or devisive store owners often incapable of true partnership.
    - Work day is not 8-5; those are the "in the trade" hours. plan on an extra 1-2 hours a day to stay organized and informed.

    Advice to Management

    - Fully vett potential DM's; ensure they can actually lead and mentor subordinates
    - Educate DM's on why it's crucial to solicit ideas / experiences from TM's.
    - Revamp the initial training program; very little purchase for the time invested
    - Incorporate objective, structured, standardized reviews after individual trainings and work-with's

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent learning opportunities, great pay and benefits, company car and free gas, flexibility

    Cons

    Management should be evaluted closely. The job is wonderful if you don't have a manager that has been at the company their entire life! The manager makes the job, and if you get someone that is invested in seeing you succeed, then you have found gold. If you get an anal manager that chooses to micromanage you, then beware. You may be looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees have the freedom to make decisions without you making them. Lighten up and trust that we know how to do our own job!
