Way too stressful for a part-time job

Barista, Cashier, Bookseller, Nookseller (Former Employee)
Riverside, CA

Pros- friendly co-workers
- discounts on books and cafe!
- great experience for retail and food
- paid every Friday !

Cons- managers overworked their employees
-There is no room for growth opportunities to move up
- seniors play favorites
- customers are sometimes not treated respectfully
- managers don't listen to their employees
- stressful
- lack of respect
- only hire girls

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers place a very high expectations on their employees--making them work hard for less pay. Employees make mistakes too, we're not perfect, but we should not be constantly reminded of our mistakes, and not recognize all the hard work and effort. There is a huge lack of respect in employees from their managers.
