    Pros

    easy to request days off and they are very flexible with a students schedule, also the job is fairly easy just clean the store and attend the customers.

    Cons

    there is no opportunity, its a dead end job, i have been working for the company for 2 years and have yet to see a raise or promotion.Also there are no full time workers unless you are an assistant manager, your hours always cut short, and you never leave on time its either they send you home because there are no more hours, or you leave super late because the store gets so packed and there are so little workers that there is not time to clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the worker should be noticed more because promotions and a chance to get a higher pay is what gives people motivation to work harder.
