Pros: very good compensation as an hourly manager.
Cons: hostile work environment that caused me to resign.
I worked at a location that was at rest stop on a national highway. I did not mind the work I did, even when we were extremely busy because of the amount of people that came in on a consistent basis. I learned how personalities can interfere with the way a business is run. There was a new manager who came into the store, and he did not like the management staff that was there, so he did everything he could within reason to get rid of them one by one. That is when I had to resign because it became a hostile work environment that I did not want to be subjected to. The hardest part of the job was when there was a concert located down the street that had over 10,000 people there, where 500 or so people would visit my location after they left there for refreshments. The most enjoyable part of the job was at times when celebrities traveling would stop in also. Very good compensation as an hourly manager. When the position was turned into a salaried position, there was a drop in the compensation for the work done.
