    Pros

    Coworkers are nice as well as management. They give you the ability to block off certain days or hours you do not want to work.

    Cons

    The pay is low and there isn't much room for advancement unless a manager leaves while you are working. Shifts are normally 8 hrs and you are constantly standing on your feet.

    Advice to Management

    Perform employee reviews. Many of the coworkers were subpar in my view. Some would avoid customers, answer personal calls, and not clock out for break then be gone way over the allotted time.

  3. Long hard hours but great coworkers!
