For a store that promotes health and wellness they sure don't care about the well-being of their employees.

ProsFlexible schedule. You can trade labor for money.

ConsBreaks are too few and far between. It's not uncommon to have to work 6 hours without a break to eat or drink anything. Not healthy! You are not even allowed water at your register to stay properly hydrated. Their excuse is that you can excuse yourself to the restroom when they aren't busy, yet if you walk away from your register they get upset with you.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need treat your employees the same way you want them to treat your customer and live up to the image that your company is projecting through their products. It's not healthy to have your employees working so many hours without proper nutrition and hydration. There is absolutely no reason a person not to at least be able to have a water bottle with them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
