Great people who are very supportive. Management accommodated schedule changes for students and people with families. Very customer focused and provided excellent service.

Advice to Management
Focus on customer service and providing best in class opportunities for your employees.

No negotiation. I had previous cashier experience though, so the manager bumped the hourly rate up by 25 cents, which is nice.
