      Pros

      great growth opportunity company more than competitive great benefits even for part time employment

      Cons

      There is a definite absence of upper management presence within the branches meaning branch management can make or break you. Sneaking in late hours sometimes just to stay up on responsibilities Training is lacking

      Pros

      The people you work with are hard working individuals. The are busy and work a lot of hours to get stuff done.

      Upper management is all about the almighty dollar. They will tell and coach that people are what is important. They say all the right things but in the end...turn over rate has increased tremendously.
