    Pros

    Company does care about the individual.
    Follows it's values and core operating guidelines.
    CEO right down to the first line manager have contact with the hourly employees and vise versa.
    Lots of room to grow.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is slightly skewed toward work. Mostly due to constant growth and finding the right person for jobs.
    Salary is competitive and benefits are good.
    Holiday work, although it is the norm in this industry.

    Pros

    It is great experience to take to your next job with another company.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, pay is a joke, and no concern for their most valuable asset---the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's 2015. Treat people better and train them properly, so they may advance & be productive assets to the company.

    I worked at AutoZone

    Pros

    Fun Environment, Real feeling of Satisfaction when helping someone, Above Minimum Pay wage for Entry level

    Cons

    Management is often times lazy, No benefits for part time employees and hardly ANYONE moves up to full time, little opportunity for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow CSRs to actually do more for the company, the Password process is atrocious and only causes clogs in customer turnaround. I was happy to have the job, but would have liked to actually see some of "Great Benefits" offered during the application process.
