      Pros

      Certain people can be pretty nice.

      Cons

      Others will try to take you down to try to make themselves look better, and still have the same pay for the last 10 years. They might as well pay you in bricks. You could probably make more selling them. No real pay raises, not union, some of the best people they will ever have, left and walked across the street to get paid what there worth, without the stress and with less physical labor. Multiple cases of covid, 2 deaths so far. Some on ventilators. Over 40 cases at one point. Refuses to shutdown even though they accepted covid support from the government. And running at half capacity. If you ned a job quickly they hire Temps from agencies but you don't know if the random Temps cycling through are taking precautions to protect themselves and ultimately you from Covid. Protocols were put in place. But still a large risk is present.

      Pros

      Staff and owner will help you learn. Not a cookie cutter approach. If your style works, it works. Locally owned franchise. Good spiffs on some items. Relaxed but professional team.

      Cons

      Must be willing to work weekends. Hard to make much more than 50,000 annually.

      Pros

      Good working conditions and benefits.

      Cons

      To many sales staff. Pie stays the same and if the money is good managment will start shrinking pieces of the pie till your a little above min wage again. They don't pay people a cent of hourly so they don't care how many staff is on the floor.
