    Great place to work if full time. Great managers. Great core values. Adamant on customer service.

    Pros

    easy to get hired, no drug tests little experience needed, will take you back after you leave

    Cons

    below average pay, lack of respect for employees. Don't expect a manager expect a corporate puppet. Manager of store has little control must ask permission from hire ups. In ability to localize to client requests. They don't follow there own rules unless it is to there benefit. Corporate needs to get out of offices work along side employees some times

    Advice to Management

    Your employee is are your asset. Treat them special, thank them for hard work, sometimes people working low wage, low stress jobs know more than you think. they look at everyone as low IQ we might know more than you think
