Pros

Your schedule can be flexible, but only if you stay on top of it. The only other pro is the employee incentive, and only if the incentive program isn't run poorly.

Cons

This company will do anything to keep their customers happy, but completely overlook the needs and morale of the staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take some time to listen to your employees. Treat everyone like adults and you will get the same in return.

    Pros

    Never saying "no" to a customer. The growth of this company is incredible. Incentives are great also.

    Cons

    None really. Hours are long, but if you worked in retail before...its not bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management gets "fast tracked" waaaay to fast and do not have all the knowledge they need to succeed. This leads to not being able to train a strong team to support you and help you run a store.My advice, learn every aspect of the business and work in it for at least 6-8 months before moving to the next...then run a store right and go to district and regional.

    Pros

    The company as a whole is commited to learning and growing as much as possible with the market.

    Cons

    So much emphasis on efficiency and customer service contradicts itself. Giving the best customer service is hard to do due to high expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to strengthen team conept and morale
