My store is right across the street from my home, so I can take my time to come there and not worry about being late. Everyone is super friendly and kind at my store. Work environment is cozy and not too big. My store is 24 hours so it's convent to get last minute items, especially with discount. Managers are cool and understanding. Overnight pays an extra dollar.
As I've said before, because I live in the area, they constantly ask me to come in. When I'm in school and have a life to live. Some hours given were unreasonable before. A certain manager, before she left stressed me out to the point where my hair thinned significantly. Overnight/truck nights can be easy or difficult.

Advice to Management
Get more security. More staff for overnights. Be more reasonable when scheduling your employees.

The stores sell prescription drugs, but more than 50% of the chain's sales come from items such as over-the-counter medications, food and beverages, and health and...
