    Pros

    Great company culture. You can feel it not only as an employee, but even as a customer. They care about their employees and make you feel valued to work there.

    Cons

    Communication often takes a backseat. Most expectations are outlined in rigorous detail, but when things change in the store (specials, methods of performance, etc.), this is not made clear to the employees which has sometimes gotten me in trouble with customers and with my managers.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is up to date on everything going on if you are unsure whether or not they have received this information.

  11. Positive atmosphere and an overall great company to work for.

    Pros

    The company itself is growing so they are always looking for leaders to move up into a management position. The pay is competitive and the benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    Typical cons such as working with employees who are lackadaisical. Work hard though and you will be acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring just to hire. Sometime employee references aren't always the best way to hire.
