Pros: they have disaster funds available if you lose your food or home
Cons: pay will decrease constantly, vacation time is useless, management only cares about drilling sales numbers, not that you maximised every possible sale.
Every 3 months the commission percentage will drop, started at 7.5% and by the end of my employement 1.5 years later, I was down to 3.45%. This happened to everyone up front. Then the hooligan antics they pull, I wanted to go to College, got my managers permission and paid for classes.....what employer doesn't want a smarter more talented employee? Well they moved my work location 50 miles from home where I had always worked at the same store. I worked for 2 weeks after starting classes and then was told we have no where for you to work. When I came back to work, even further away, they said I missed the last 2 weeks of work and said my (schooling) wasn't working out. Even though the manager I reported to was expecting me to work that day when he called me 3 days prior, our boss told me that BS excuse instead of the truth. I also continually gave 4 weeks notice for vacation and for 11 months straight I tried to use it legitimately, I ended up having to use it the very last 2 weeks of the year when it was cold and my plans were many times ruined. They only care about themselves, their unrealistic goals, and that you are replaceable even when you make more money per paycheck at their scrappy commissions than the store manager who has a $30,000 higher base salary than me. I still made more money, and I lost all of it taking classes to move up in this company. My previous employer begged me to come back for 5 years, this place ruined that possibility, Mr Tire is a better company to work for and doesn't have half the tools and state of the art equipment this place has. Don't leave your job for any reasons they offer to you, apply elsewhere, only work here if your welfare is running out, or you have nothing else better to do. I can tell you so much more, but I think how they treated everyone in my store and what happened to me above, will tell you what you can expect at the least.
