      With the right team it’s fun, without it’s a sh*t show

      Pros

      Most coworkers are cool but some can be annoying or weird. Really laid back. Cool product. Nice customers. Easy job. Great discounts ($27 vans, etc). Though it doesn’t seem like it the goods outweighs the bads cuz most of the bads are political.

      Cons

      Tier 3 stores are not given what’s needed to be successful. District managers can be lazy and do not hire the right managers. High turnover of coworkers and managers. I’m in a bad area and there’s high theft and some weirdos but I’ve seen other stores that only have problems with entitled people. No commission. On your feet a lot.
