Pros

-Doesn't have to be full time hours. -Pretty flexible for vacation/time off needs (for full time employees). -Very good initial online training. -Friendly co-workers who are usually very willing to help you learn new things. -TONS of hours during the sales seasons. -The supervisor is very approachable.

Cons

-Training is minimal after the job commences. -Standing through the shift is hard on your feet. -The hours dry up to almost nothing after the holidays (for new employees).

Advice to Management

-Give cashiers a stool to lean on. -Don't worry so much about them being idle during times they are not checking people out. -Have actual work for the cashier to do during those times and the time won't be wasted. But in truth? The cashier is so busy during check out rushes that a bit of time to gather yourself in between is probably a healthy thing anyways. -If a new employee can work more than 40 hours a week during the sales seasons please find a way to offer that same employee more than 4 hours the week after the sales period ends.

    Pros

    Dealing with the public is always fun Work goes by quickly Nice to have a job at all Job relatively simply

    Cons

    Felt exploited as was put on 5 hour shifts without a break and never more hours than that so my breaks never had to be paid Standing for 5 hours straight Had a very negative and short-tempered manager Was given very few hours in a week despite being entirely free, partly so I never had to be paid benefits because I could never be full-time with those hours (similar situation all around the company) Employees that had worked there for years were looking for other jobs because their hours were being cut down

    Advice to Management

    Fire people and give others more hours and more benefits to encourage employee loyalty Bring back motivational bonuses Ensure group ideas sessions happen more often and changes are actually implemented
