    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with. They are flexible and work with you on scheduling. Easy and relaxed environment.

    Cons

    The pay isn't that great. An assistant usually tops out around $10/hr however there is such a high turn over rate there is usually a GM position that becomes available rather quickly.

    Pros

    I have a close relationship with the other employers. It is basically easy money and a simple job because I work in a small store.

    Cons

    Job can be very boring at times because it is so slow and at times we have less money in the register than what we start with

    Advice to Management

    Keep technology up to date and offer pay raises
