    Corporate Office Employee Underpayment Is This Company's Policy

    Pros

    The organization's flexibility of working with your work -life schedule. Openess to accept new ideas as well as implementation of those ideas. The company's processes and procedures are outdated and they now realize to remain competive they must incorporate a higher caliber employee. Overall respectfull work enviroment especially now that a new CEO has arrived.

    Cons

    The company makes it a practice to under pay/compensate their employees regardless of performance. If you are thinking about becoming a part of this organization negotiate salary, benefits, and vacation upfront. Software, policy, practices, and procdeures are outdated even though now there are trying to come into the present. A lot of the managment aren't as knowledgable in their field as they should be. The company handbook is too open ended. Alot is left to managerial discretion which opens the company to neopotism or favortism issues.

    Good job and good company to work for

    Pros

    Really good people at the Corporate Headquarters. A laid back environment with not a lot of stress. Yearly bonuses with some years really good and some just okay. Yearly salary reviews and always at least some kind of raise. Quality, high integrity people and company.

    Cons

    Upper level management has had a lot of instability. Sometimes lack of direction and leadership. It seems that upper management does not have a clear strategy or the strategy is always changing.

    Pros

    Most people are cordial; Some of the IT projects are interesting; Health insurance costs are modest for mediocre coverage

    Cons

    HR cannot be trusted; Legal dept exists only to make sure managers are protected from their abuses (like forcing employees to work off the clock); Most ineffective IT group I have ever worked for; Took 8 years to upgrade their ERP system and still can't track costs to the item level; Installed multimillion dollar fuel pricing system that resulted in the worst fuel sales in company history; Installed multimillion dollar time clock system that doesn't work; Took several years to install POS that works in only half the stores; Also they only pay lip service to SARBOX controls (audit nightmare); Management doesn't listen to nor do they care about the employees; Bad employees and managers are often protected by legal team- Innovation is discouraged

    Pros

    Some great people work here. Very positive change with the hiring of Dennis Hatchell and CIO change. Nice office in Cary with a great location.

    Cons

    some departments are Toxic which makes for a toxic environment. Quite a bit of internal strife which becomes personal when some don't get there way. I was like working with school yard bullies at times. Pay, benefits and growth opportunities are lacking. Inter-departmental battles are the norm.

    Pros

    A patriotic company that proudly supports our troops. The company has great brand recognition and fuel prices

    Cons

    Projects are never ending and there is tremendous chaos. Chaos is due to people being in the wrong position or having been in the same position so long that change is viewed as a threat. Many good employees left the company because there was no career growth or management support.
