    Pros

    Its money, nothing too great about the job. They work with school schedules well.

    Cons

    Union. Pay scales are garbage. Hours are low are extremely inconsistent. The union does not function for any other purpose than to take your money and you have to be apart of the union to work there.

    Pros

    Easy Job. Depending on what you are doing. The union will fight for you if upper management tries to fire you for some ridiculous reason.

    Cons

    Union Dues. Some job requirements are over-stated and taken WAY too seriously Such as: Making sure WIC transactions are correct. any more than 3 mistakes that cause your register to be off and you can/will be "let go". A.K.A fired.

    Advice to Management

    Clocking your sweeps is not the most important thing in the store.
