    Pros

    Best reasons
    Talking to my friends being a little late was alright management was relaxed.
    Often would let me go on a break whenever I felt like it. It was great until I had to fight someone who disrespected you know?

    Cons

    Fighting with coworkers really naive people to work with.
    They wouldn't mind they business it was like high school had met middle school era. It was almost unbearable at time I felt like just clinging on to it from being homeless.

    Advice to Management

    Personal growth to management always let your employees eat they are not robots they are people. Please invest in some toiletries the bathroom is disgusting and also please stop picking favorites all the time. It's really obvious who gets around with smiles and extra services provided for no working time and still getting paid on top of that.

    Pros

    The management is very helpful with a well structured work place. Hard work brings in more money. Problems are few and far between.

    Cons

    Not very many cons. Depending on the store hours might be hard to get and other workers may be difficult to get along with, which wasnt the issue at my store.

  11. Okay money, very frustrating, good job for younger adults.
