      Pros

      Very friendly staff and working environment. Supportive management.

      Cons

      Felt like there wasn't a long way to go career-wise. Difficult as an artist to work close with the arts but without the flexibility to pursue.

      The Good, Bad & the Ugly

      Pros

      Easy fun job, good team and positive work environment if you are lucky enough to land a position at a location that is well managed. Some company perks & basic benefits for full time employees.

      Cons

      The opposite of the above. The company and management depending on location is far to tolerant toward lazy, tardy employees who lack good work ethic and consideration to fellow employees that ultimately create a negative work environment for others. Also...management seems to only pick those they like for advancement and not employees who necessarily reliable, hard working, dedicated and show initiative.

      Pros

      Relaxed work environment and great sales training

      Cons

      Excellence is not celebrated and though it is toted as a way for the gigging musician to hold a steady job, juggling your schedule to gig is not encouraged.

      Pros

      Management sincerely cared for employees. Good working environment. Freedom to manage work yourself. Good tools. Great customers. I was and am thankful for the job with these great folks.

      Cons

      Low wage for required level of education, skill and experience. As hourly, no reward for working hard and really producing. Expectations did rise somewhat with no change in wages.
