    Pros

    The company is solid and one can advance quickly.

    Cons

    The upper management does not support their store managers and information is kept secretly among them. Returned phones call are not the norm , thus making managers feel like their out on a limb with their decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep information to yourself and be selective about hiring your employees. Keep all emails and text messages and follow the SOP to the letter.
