Pros

- Great staff
- Fun work environment
- Pay is competitive

Cons

I got this job while I was still in college, and they had me driving to a local store, and then to one that was about an hour away. I did all of my work in the mornings (5:30am) so I would have to wake up at an ungodly hour to get there. They also had some rule where they won't have to compensate you for gas if your house is with 60 miles of the store or something... Thats was the only bad part about the job/
