    Pros

    The managers and district managers really care about employees. Very team oriented.

    Cons

    It does not matter how many good things you do, one bad thing and that's all they remember. Not strict on employees (with their behavior, following company rules, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Follow up with employees. You should not be keeping employees that are harmful to your business.

    Pros

    The general manager is very understanding and is willing to work with us. She even tries to get us as many hours as she can.

    Cons

    The hours are extremely low for the amount of pay. It more often than not comes down to do I buy food or do I pay bills.

    Advice to Management

    Either up the pay or up the hours so we can survive!!!!

    Pros

    Seriously, none at all.

    Cons

    Employee's constantly taking cigarette breaks.
    On several occasions I caught employees smoking marijuana in a walk in freezer, including one of my bosses.
    Management refuses to take responsibility for any of their actions and will place it anywhere that they will be safe.
