No opinion of CEO

Pros

-Leading large teams of people
-Communication skills go through the roof
-Great on the resume
-Fun and different from the behind the desk job

Cons

-Rough hours
-Working every other weekend
-More difficult to move up than they sell you on
-Poor compensation bonuses at ETL levels

Advice to Management

Coming from running the day to day duties of a top 20 store in the company, I would have appreciated better compensation in terms of bonus and ability to move upward. Lots of talk, not much movement. Great talent doesn't last long when you under compensate that great talent.

    Ensure while growth initiatives are focused on that resources and the drive for improvement also remains on the core.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This job requires absolutely no thinking at all. People ask questions about products but it doesn't matter if you know it or not, just make stuff up. There is also a sweet discount, so that's something.

    Cons

    Enjoy working with high school dropouts and dealing with terrible people. The hours are poor the pay is bad, management are either lifers or people people with degrees in underwater basket weaving.

    Advice to Management

    Stop abusing employees and using the security cameras to keep track of your employees. Harassing employees over the red phone for not looking busy enough is terrible.
