    Pros

    Little to no supervision from Management. Make your own daily schedule of accounts which allows flexibility and able to get done early if needed. Don't take work home with you at night or weekends.

    Cons

    Poor communication throughout company. Too many factors that can affect your job/salary that you have no control over. No commission statements.
    Little marketing support and poor communication on how management wants products and programs to be executed.
    Employees afraid to ask questions and hard to get answers from anyone.
    Poor Human Resources dept. that never have answers and never get back to you, just referral to main 1-800 corporate number.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees to make business process work more efficiently for all departments. Better communication throughout the organization. Have clear cut decisions and directions on business practices.

    Pros

    you have alot of freedom no one really over you you can move at your own pace take breaks according to your pace

    Cons

    alot of stores over a large distance if you dont have a good dependable vehicle this isnt the job usually twice the stores over 3 or 4 times the distance than competitors

    Advice to Management

    i think we should have dedicated routes and your off day should be the day the store doesnt get worked and i think we should hire more ppl to reduce the amount of stores and amount of distance

    Pros

    Brand recognition, multiple locations across the US

    Cons

    No work life balance, inexperienced management team in some areas, notorious micromanagement

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep some of the better employees, management needs to rethink the work-life balance at the company. Requiring that employees are always available and connectable during non-business hours is unacceptable.

    Pros

    Okay benefits but the insurance premiums have been rising a fair amount over the last few years. High level top down communication has really improved over the last few years. Lots of focus on trying to promote from within instead of hiring from outside when positions become available. There's been a lot more employee led training classes available on site in recent years which is a plus, but quality will vary from class to class. Standard vacation time starts at 2 weeks and you have the option to buy another 5 days.

    Cons

    Your work-life balance and happiness here is going to hinge almost solely on your manager. Very little consistency across the various departments and teams. Some managers/directors understand the importance of work life balance while others fully expect their employees to work 60+ hours per week, every week. And holidays. As a whole, the company does a good job trying to promote hard working employees but then does a terrible job of training their newly minted managers in how to manage people. As a result, you end up with mid level managers whose management style consists of berating their employees on a consistent basis. Involving HR usually means the person will become the black sheep of the group and probably "laid off" during restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    As a manager, you are there to make sure your direct reports have the tools and resources to get their jobs done. Don't forget that. Happy, hard working employees are what get those KPIs

    Pros

    Decent work life balance depending on the group you worked in

    Cons

    Culture could be better in all areas...this could be a great place to work

    Advice to Management

    You have such a great brand and image to the outside public...use that to promote the same culture inside the company

  10. A job for those who are okay with just doing a job.

    Pros

    Perfect job for those who want a solitary, silent environment. Great opportunity to make 40 friends that you see daily. (drivers) Ability to run your own show. Do what you want when you want to as long as everything gets done.

    Cons

    If you are younger than 40 you will be the youngest person working here. Drivers can be a bit fussy and frustrating. Management is ever changing. You will do the same thing everyday....no matter what it never changes. No real activity except pacing a small locked room. No job advancement as this job is a bit of a dead end.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to act like management. Fellow employees need to be reminded to get off their high horses at times.

    Pros

    Have done a good job of consolidating various sub-standard businesses. Shown strong share performance since going public in 2008. Strong senior leadership.

    Cons

    That same senior leadership are all about themselves. No succession planning. No career development. Significant imbalance between senior leadership compensation and others. While the company has done well externally, they are still finding their way internally in terms of how they treat their employees. This is however typical of a publically traded company that are all about quarterly results often at the expense of their stakeholders, including their employees. They could learn a thing or two about conscious leadership.
