    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at SPINX Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities are there. They are able to work with different types of schedules for the part time employees. They have tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Work becomes your life. They drain every ounce of you. They expect way to much at times that end up putting so much pressure on one person that you end up feeling like your drowning.

    Advice to Management

    We can only do so much.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at SPINX Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. They make the work atmosphere tolerable

    Cons

    Upper management uses a threat atmosphere as management style. Hidden agendas until after you take the job. Great bonuses if you can keep them. They will move you to a new store and tell you personally responsible for losses of former manager. Take your check and bonus to cover. You work for free half the time

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers like they are important. Do away with threats to job and bonus

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SPINX Company

    Pros

    Pay rate is good, but has attachments and hidden agendas that aren't revealed until you accept the position.

    Cons

    Work balance doesn't exist, inexperienced "so-called" supervisors and middle management. Inappropriate policies for company losses. Poor/ inadequate communication with management team. Theory of "threatening employees bonuses, making employees pay back losses at a specific amount, is not a forward thinking company"

    Advice to Management

    The advice is to take the advice. Which does not take place.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at SPINX Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary, Vacations and benefits.

    Cons

    Very negative attitude and management by fear. Lots of hours, early morning hours. Leadership. The company tries to run the food service like a retail store and its very different. Budgets keep decreasing and expectations keeps rising,

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the core of the business. The store staff is the heart that pays the Executive staff. Stop leading by fear.
