    Bad Company run by a bad family.

    Nov 20, 2022 - Regional Sales Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good Pay but that's really all that they offer.

    Cons

    No accrued sick time, which is against state law. Minimal vacation, and strange regulations and caps as to when you can use YOUR earned time. Push back for requesting vacation time and heaven forbid, you're ever sick. They threaten to fire you. No flexibility for my growing family.

    It was a stable job, with no heavy physical demands.

    The local franchise I worked for had really sketchy work practices. I can't speak for their corporate office. The local level was a nightmare.

    Room to grow.

    Nov 14, 2022 - Senior IT Manager in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    My peers are wonderful to work with. Lucky to have been here before recent management changes.

    Cons

    IT Management is very egotistic. Only a transactional leader. They care about themselves and what you can do for them. No long term or sustainable vision for the future. Very short term thinking. Also not focused on technology and changing the business in a good way. The focus in IT is accounting, cutting costs and marginalizing employees.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded. Each location is locally owned and operated so experiences can vary. From a corporate side it's a joke - they promise the world and can't delivery on most.

    Cons

    It's a constant manual labor job with constant customer service responsibilities
