    Pros

    Managers/owners are very nice. Discounts on all merchandise.

    Stay focused on the success of the franchisees.

    I have been working at Foot Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The CEO is open to listening to ideas from senior staff members, he has a great appreciation and understanding for the meaning of Quality of Life on a personal level. The pay is below state average but is offset by the freedom given when needed to be with family, or in the case of illness.

    Cons

    Its a difficult task to work with small business owners with above average educations, they have a tendency to want to ignore procedures. Being highly educated they believe they have the answers to many of the problems they will face, when the fact is belonging to a franchisee/brand the problems have been faced before and the way to overcome them is already available

    Advice to Management

    Be less present the system when it has down times is always looking to blame someone. When you make yourself more available they expect you to have all the answers and the more answers you give the more they expect. The end result is inevitable you will be faced with a question you will not know the answer to and that is the one you will be labeled with. The system will latch on to the one question you couldn't answer and say you don't know what your doing.

    Pros

    Helping people achieve comfort from their feet and up. Working in a small business team setting where your opinion matters.

    Cons

    Still a small business and that can cause frustration with larger competitors. Normal hazards of retail.
