Good for after school job

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Bellevue, WA

ProsI like this job for many reasons, the main ones are:
Kids are amazing
Co-workers are all fun
Good location

ConsThis job as all jobs have a downside as well:
Coverage was lacking on weekends
Senior management did not run the management team smoothly
Hired managers that were not qualified at all

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people that can do the job at hand efficiently and listen to the team, carefully, to exactly what they need

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
