    Pros

    Good pay, great people, great scheduling, very understanding co-workers and managers, great positive enviroment, great discount across entire brand, friendly customers, got a chance to make relationships with your customers

    Cons

    Not many cons, but the only one I can think of is there was one manager who would choose favorites. and some customers would not be very nice (but that would be at just about any where you work)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally, and do not pick favorites. If your going to treat someone nicely all the time, then treat everyone nicely all the time. Don't make people feel left out. Do not give signals and cues to your 'favorite' employees to do certain things that you don't want someone else doing.

    Pros

    Easy to ask for time off or change of schedule

    Cons

    Feels like a sweatshop, you can't even interact with other employees while on the floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should treat its employees with respect, and allow them to complete their tasks without micromanaging the way the do it. They often act like drill sargeants rather than co-workers.
