    Pros

    Benefits are better than most companies - employee discount, discounted staff meals, free uniforms, 401k, health insurance,,,

    Cons

    It's retail so the you may have to work on weekends and some holidays. You have to wear a company provided uniform. I personally don't mind it so much.

    Pros

    Great managers that are willing to help make your job better. They are willing to do anything you are. Environment facilitates strong teamwork and communication across departments.

    Cons

    Like all retail positions, customers are the biggest challenge. Sometimes I feel I do not have the tools/authority necessary to solve customer issue without getting manager input.
