    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Additional Health & Wellness programs & support
    401k
    Very safety focused
    Advancement opportunities
    Tries to stay competitive within the industry with programs & offerings for the customer

    Cons

    Constant pressure to perform 100% in all metrics with less & less help in the stores. Does not offer competitive wages so help is harder to retain. Horrible training program

    Advice to Management

    Offer better pay & training to new hires
    Put more help back into the stores
    Have a better filter at corporate so you actually know what you’re pushing on the stores. Unloading 5-6 initiatives + the daily/weekly tasks is getting a little extreme
