    Pros

    Request offs were always permitted
    Flexibility with schedule
    Fellow college students are a better group of customers than the general public
    Coworkers are either fellow college students or really easy-going people. Coworkers that knew what they were doing and were reliable made the work environment.

    Cons

    Pay raises were once every year and usually consisted from $0.05 to $0.15. Once had a raise that was just $0.01. I worked for this company for 4 years and never came close to $8.00/hour, although people hired in with no experience would receive $8/hour.
    Football Saturdays means no parking and no reliance on management, because they're all pulled to work the stadium.
    Forcing employees to upsell to college students who barely make above minimum wage at their own jobs: not the best idea.
    Upper management has no respect for how stores run. Every store is not a cookie cutter replica of the next one and some stores deliver better in areas that others don't.
    The ridiculous amount of times I would call managers for assistance with a problem (register not working, replacement/breaker not showing up) and hearing back several hours later grows old pretty quick.
    Supervisors ended up doing most of the work and had nothing to show for it (in terms of payment).

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to work with storekeepers about what they really do/don't need in their individual stores (meal plan items, amounts of product). They know their stuff.

  2. Not the best job for entry level
