    Pros

    Great company to work for as long as you always have a smile and never get on management's bad side.

    You cannot freely use any profane language on the property, including break areas. Outside hiring into 'top store leaders' is a joke.

    Pros

    Always something going on constantly. This is based on time of year and what's in-season. Great community involvement as well.

    Cons

    While there is something always going on, it can be very fast paced at the store level. I enjoy this but others may not. Overall, not too many downsides!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!
