    Pros

    Depending on location, very good company to work for.

    Cons

    Very very focused on your sales of optional products. Each location is basically franchised out, so you aren't technically working for the company as a whole, so you don't get all the benefits of working for the corporation.

    Pros

    Unlimited Earning Potential
    Chance to work within a team
    Good health benefits
    Fair vacation package
    Every day is different
    Good management (at least in Salt Lake City)

    Cons

    Sales reps make more than managers so its hard to want to move up in the company when taking a pay cut.
    Team members are jealous and try to drag you down if you are making more commission than they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay managers more to entice good talent to stay with company. It would give us a desire to move up, especially if we have to work more hours.

    Pros

    The only pro is the car you receive, which is still a hassle in itself

    Cons

    The infrastructure, management, union employees, general overall disparity among employees, dishonesty. It was an awful experience and constantly was facing scrutiny and condescending upper management in an environment that was nearly impossible for success. The proper tools were not provided whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Lying to your employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers for the most part are very friendly and helpful. Most of the ops managers are there to help when they can.

    Cons

    The upper management has an issue with not doing what they say they will do and has issues with being on a power trip. they will try to blow smoke but then does whatever they can to mess with people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a senior manager at the airport that needs to go. As an employee we have to trust what our leadership tells us and they can not show favorites. worst upper management I have EVER had in my adult life.
