    Pros

    Management shows appreciation for all work done. Great pay, great benifits. Overall positive environment. The ability to move up.

    Cons

    Not having an IPad at all times (csm) to better assist customers with price checks, rain checks, to see what the warehouse has in stock etc. Would be more efficient and make for happier customers.

    Keep up the AMAZING work. Love the new changes happening within the company!
