    I worked at Sir Speedy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None! There is literally nothing good about working for Tae Lee.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Ridiculous demands. Tae has no clue about the design process. He is a racist. He is selective about who customer service attention is given to. He has no respect for women. He curses and dehumanizes employees daily. When I needed time off, because my son was in ICU for a neural trauma, the day before he DIED, he was EVIL and only cared about how soon I'd be back at work. Tae Lee is a HORRIBLE man.

    Advice to Management

    Sir Speedy corporate should remove Tae Lee as a franchisee - he doesn't even understand the way design to print even works. He is running ancient software for such a high-tech business and over-charging customers for LIMITED design work. He expects high-end design to be done in 15 minutes! It is obscene... he refuses to invest in current software and updated computers on top of the fact that he NEVER praises anyone but his nephew, he ONLY criticizes and dehumanizes the staff. Tae is simply awful!

    I worked at Sir Speedy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found no pros working at this location

    Cons

    Owner is a complete idiot. I was in sales, and it was taking sometimes as long as One and a half months to get estimates back in my hands to deliver to the customer. Our competition had done the estimate, produced the sign and installed the sign in before I was able to get an estimate back to the customer. I have had sign estimates where our price was 2K higher that our competition..... Then he wants to send me back with a matching price ..... My credibility as a sales guy at that point is nonexistent. It's like, I attempted to rape you, but since that didn't work out, I brought flowers this time!

    Advice to Management

    Close the business, you are killing the Sir Speedy reputation!

    Pros

    It's a laid back environment. I get along with my coworkers and clientele very well. Working with digital technology has been a good learning experience and mostly fun. It's helped me open up and become comfortable talking with clients and helping them solve any problems that might arise during pre-production, production, and any possible post-production problems.

    Cons

    The biggest con is my hourly wage. I don't get paid what a bigger company would pay. Getting a raise is difficult with a small business. Sometimes, the work is tedious and I'm just struggling to finish it. Another con is the constant problems with the digital presses. It's frustrating when we have to frequently call tech support. The commute stinks. It can be tiring going home.
