    I have been working at See's Candies part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible with scheduling, Learn a lot about customer service, learn a variety of tasks, you get to eat chocolate, usually a pretty fun environment, you can lots of times work at other stores if needed to get more hours

    Cons

    Sometimes there are minimal hours so most of them go to the management, sometimes customers can get impatient, management can be good or not as good depending on what store you are at like just about any other company.
