    Pros

    Very flexible with my school schedule, decent hours, decent wages, and you get an employee discount. It was a good job to get me through my college years.

    Cons

    Obviously if you don't like working with the public, then being a cashier isn't the job for you. Customers can be difficult to deal with.

    Pros

    Easy hiring, scheduling was pretty flexible, and work was obviously not too difficult.

    Cons

    Poor management, seems they don't train their managers well at all and are constantly swapping them around.

    Advice to Management

    Interacting more with your employees isn't a weakness.

    Pros

    great people, very flexible scheduling,

    Cons

    people in certain departments play favorites,
    depending on where you work, the workload isn't worth the pay

    Advice to Management

    decrease loss in product and profit, decrease prices, increase pay, take the time to focus on what trainees are being taught. It's not enough!
