    Pros

    Took this position for some extra income. Fantastic pay. Great way to meet new people and get insiders on new products and recipes

    Cons

    All the rules, restrictions, and pressure from manager drain the fun out of the job. Its gets a little uneasy seeing seniors getting hired who can barely be on their feet all day or are not engaging club members

    Advice to Management

    More breaks would be appreciated. I arrived when they supposedly reduced it from two break times to one.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, holiday pay are great pay time of driving from one store to another one.

    A lot of walking all day long, lack of communication and training is really basic learn on you own. Pay is really bad for all that you have to do at the different stores. Sending too much stuff to you home and them is you don't used for different reason you had to deal with it.
