Do not get hurt on this job, they refused to open workers comp claims for weeks hoping you will give up. You have to get lawyers involved, then they get mad, intimidate you tell people and your co workers that you are faking. I was rear ended in company car. Don'T BOTHER with them. You Can make more money at Wendys.

Empty promises. Was promised a raise and I have yet to see it. Given more responsibility but no increase in pay. Was told needed to watch videos for a raise but they schedule time for you to do that as they must be watched on site. So raises are based off how many videos are watched instead of how job performance is. They make you feel worthless.

Too many hours was hired as part time.Working full time hours this has been going on for five years.I am retired military and have good work ethic thought it would be fun turned out to be nightmare. I thought part time meant under 25 hours a week.Not eligible for a lousy week of vacation from this company.

Because of the sales goal given by corporate, the employees are pitted against each other, ending in friends no longer being friends.They become very aggressive practically pushing you aside to get the sales..Very sad.
