    I love it. some lazy workers

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsPretty good starting pay, plenty of opportunities.

    ConsManagement doesnt seem to care if one worker does all the work as long as it gets done. Cashiers are underappreciated and underpaid for the amount of work that is done

    Advice to Senior Managementdo more for cashiers, improve promotion policy, allow people to enter management at the store they started at.
