    Pros

    Most employees do their jobs.
    The GM will help you attain your goal if you do your job.
    The company is stable and you need not worry about the business closing.

    Cons

    Hours and days change almost weekly making it hard to plan anything.
    Hard to get 40 hours a week even at full-time.
    Be sure the work load is shared or you will be the one doing most of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better control of how many employees and work hours/days.
