Pros: super fun environment, loved my staff, instant gratification with good #s!!
Cons: no benefits, no bonus, no vacation, 6 day work weeks, 65-75 hours, facility needed so many repairs
The idea behind BWW is EXACTLY what I was so excited to be a part of when I was invited to join their team, I love sports, my staff respected me and gave me feedback in order for us to grow together, however being a part of a franchise rather than direct corporate is where things go downhill. I feel as though with this direct franchise the caring, fun, – more... friendly environment was lost and all any one saw was $$. I am mindful of the importance of being profitable, but employees are the backbone of profit and taking care of them was NOT on other managers agenda. Under excellent upper level management it would be an AWESOME company to work for, but selfishness gets a large company no where when turnover becomes outrageous (from hourly employees to management.) I work 65-75 hours a week, no benefits, no bonus, no appreciation. I work hard, but I do not enjoy doing so when the results I have brought seem to bring no benefits. – less
