    Pros

    Good benefits (if you work 20 or more hours)
    Never bored

    Cons

    Didn't have any training before being thrown onto the front register
    Many employees and managers break a lot of the sanitary rules and safety rules
    Have to deal with very rude customers

    Advice to Management

    Sanitation rules and safety rules should ALWAYS be followed. Also, brand new employees need more training or the store will flop.

  2. Laid Back Job
