Pros

Friendly staff, always something to do in the business, easy to learn about the card business, tills are easy to work, hours to suit available.

Cons

Bad pay, little communication from higher level staff, incompetent people promoted, bad treatment of temporary staff, horrible t-shirts given to staff.

Advice to Management

Pay the staff better, stock more change in stores to avoid having to do a change run to other businesses, treat temporary staff better.

    Pros

    When it's quiet and you have time to properly help customers and you both feel good afterwards

    Cons

    Busy most of the time (in my particular store) no time to relax and usually stressed, not enough hours for more staff, management doing longer hours than contracted every day to keep up with the amount of work, zero training for members of a new store that just opened nearby, farcicle 'happy' atmosphere attempted by weekly bulletin that doesn't translate down to employees, no air con despite many customer complaints about the heat from a busy store located in a mall with air con in every shop (also no air con in 2 other Card Factorys)
