Pros: customers, employees, vendors.
Cons: hours, owners owners owners.
As a previous manager of this store for approx a year I was employed by corporate and a franchise purchaser. During my tenure of employment I worked with the general manager weekly. I learned that it was possible to rebuild a down spiraling business by being honest with your customers. I worked with several wonderful individuals throughout this time under my helm. The hardest part of the whole job was the amount of hours that it required rebuilding this store and overcoming the bad reputation that this store had made in the past. During my time of employment, I was injured away from the job. The corporation was very willing to work with me during this difficult time. During this time of my injury, the store was sold to an individual franchise purchaser. The new owners were very aware of my injury and we came to an agreement for me to continue on as manager for them after the purchase was final. 5 weeks after the sales transaction was final and all the leg work was done to continue operation as usual, the new owner came in at the beginning of one business day and fired me. His reason was that my injury was affecting sales and my performance. I personally would not recommend anyone to apply for employment at this facility do to my experience with the new owners. I feel my termination was not due to my injury, it was because I refused to sell services that we could not offer at 300% mark up!
