    Pros

    The hours are pretty flexible, the work isnt too challenging, there is a lot to look at in the store when you inevitably get bored

    Cons

    Management doesnt care about you, its extremely boring, the pay isnt great at all, the discount isnt very generous, other employees are odd

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and make the work less boring. I watch the minutes pass by and dont even feel compensated for my time when Im done
