    They are very flexible with scheduling and will 9 times out of 10 work with you. Sick pay and holiday pay Casual

    Some of the managers can be unprofessional and do not know how to keep confidential personal information private.

    If someone tells you something confidential, do not go around telling EVERYONE.

    Pros

    Great Work Environment. Also good opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    You really don't start making good money until you become a full manager. Assistant Managers only get a 40 cent raise from cashier. Also you really don't get enough hours unless you are full -time.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great benefits, room to grow, fellow co-workers are friendly. Get paid time and a half on company holidays and receive company holiday vacation.

    Cons

    HR takes a long time to resolve issues and it takes a long time to advance forward with the company unless you're an external hire for a position. You only earn one week of vacation after a full year of full-time (and only gain it after the second year).

    Advice to Management

    MICs and Store Directors should be a bit more patient with employees especially during a busy hour, and HR needs to not put off resolving issues in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Flexible hours & scheduling. Frequent raises. Chances for advancement. Great employee benefits & discounts.

    Cons

    Management shows a lot of favoritism. (Worked at 3 different stores over 4 years & this was the only issue.)

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so obvious when playing favorites. Try to be more balanced when counting IPM #s & customer service, sometimes balancing both can be complicated during rushes.
