    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    None. I went into the position with a completely open mind and gave 6 weeks before even having an opinion, they do what ever to cut labor but will foolishly splurge to keep a good image going as far as lying..

    Cons

    It's all about their corporate bonuses and profit. The customers satisfaction means nothing as long as they are getting their money usually out of convince.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to the long term employees and customers.

    I worked at Sendik's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    4 weeks vacation
    4 weeks paternity leave

    Cons

    Okay pay. Long weekends all weeekends. No work-life balance. Very demanding with no time for breaks. Have to work almost all holodays. When boss on vacation you have to work sometimes 7-10 days straight. Industry burns you out.

    Advice to Management

    More MOD's at stores. Make more salary managers since all pressure falls on two people which causes to get burnt out.
