Pros

The money was ok, a certain supervisor was nice to me. The products they carried were pretty easy to sell.

Cons

They change the rules for daily job routine every week it seemed. The hours are bad my hours there were 3am-1pm or later. No 2 days off in a row you get wednesday and sunday off. Everything that went wrong there seemed to be the saleman's fault upper managment didn't seem they did anything wrong. You drive vehicles that are more than 20 years old with no heat in the winter no air conditioning in the summer and all the maintainance issues you can think of.

Advice to Management

Know that the salespeople are the back bone of your company and not the problem all the time. You need to get them better equipment to work with like trucks, handheld computers, and carts to carry the products in and out of the stores.

    Pros

    Nice to work for a brand name that my friends and family recognize, wages and/or salaries are competitive, nice benefits and vacation and time off packages

    Cons

    Too many rehires from previous owners that are set in their ways, long hours, extra days and overtime wear down workers, emphasis on business rather than people

    Advice to Management

    Make sure EVERYONE is on board with the new business plan and model, and make sure to not over work employees, it would be better to hire more people and have them work less hours
