      Pros

      Sometimes you will work with good people

      Cons

      A lot of favoritism. The company claims that theirs room for growth but it’s all based on who you know to move up in the company.

      First day of work they had a guy training me that was so hungover he couldnt talk, the gm knew it, she said she didnt have anyone else. Than I was yelled at, cussed at, worked way to many hours. Coworkers were great but management could have cared less.

      Pros

      You get to eat free food. If you are a college student this is perfect for you to make some money.

      Cons

      I can’t find no negative thing about the company maybe moving you around to different shops which is a bit annoying.

      Pros

      Free coffee and lunch + good work hours

      Tragically poor leadership that is truly disconnected from the both market realities and market opportunities available. Two steps behind and too slow to act, always.
