Good opportunity for first time employment
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 10, 2018
MRG is a decent place to work, right up to the salary level (ASM and above). Beginning pay is well above minimum and benefits are offered to full time employees after a probationary period. The job itself is fairly easy, especially if you have any retail experience. However, the constant training of the same material over and over again (weekly) becomes tedious.
MRG offers opportunities for advancement within the company. They try to make it fun with their Professional Growth Program, but the mentors (usually Assistant Managers, Store Managers, and District Managers) end up being too busy to really be involved and help you with the projects.
The biggest problem for me, before I left the company, was that it was short handed on District Managers. The ones they had were stretched thin and wide across the various Vegas locations. The stress of that trickled down to the store management level where SMs and ASMs were over worked and limited in their ability to hire additional coverage, based on store revenue.
Benefits, 401K, employee discounts
Management bonuses are offered, but difficult to achieve. Time off is earned at a slow rate.
