    Being a young female I got hit on by customers quite often.

    Come in every once in a while and introduce yourself to employees and customers, it will show both parties you care about their business as well as yours.

    Great work/life balance, anytime I needed off I would receive it. I was payed pretty decently for being a cashier. All the employees are friends with each other and are happy to cover for you.

    Cons

    I've experienced a few costumers who were sexiest towards me and other female employees.

    Pros

    They go above and beyond on training and making sure the customer is first!

    Cons

    For one team stores the pay is less than desirable. You work twice as hard for not as much pay as the regular stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one is saying you have to be on the same page, but at least get in the same book.
