    Pros

    flexible, average pay, pay for mileage, pretty nice team of people I work with

    Cons

    not enough work. One week I had over 40 hours, the next I had 2 hours. Sometimes seems like the manager plays favorites. Manager never has any answers for me, so I ask other merchandisers. No chance of getting a raise. Once I turned down a job because I had an appointment, then my hours per week went way down. Idk if that was a coincidence or not, but seemed a little fishy.

    Advice to Management

    You should acknowledge your good workers. Offer raises after 6 mos or a year. Stop playing favorites.
