    Pros

    It's a small store, does not get busy often. Great employees. Discount.

    They cut hours, small business so they pay minimum wage. You will only be working less than three days a week 2-4 hours at a time. Management is questionable.

    Get better training. Don't make anyone do anything when their off the clock.
