Pros

Good Hours-My Manager knew that I was trying to help my husband provide for our son. So she gave me decent hours and pay..

Cons

Bad shifts-I had to work split shifts often, and Poor working conditions. We were told if we worked less than 8 hours and needed to sit, then we shouldn't have come to work at all and must not need a job...so the only time I'd sit was when I had to use the restroom, but she surely made time for smoke breaks!!

    Managers are nice but hours are crazy.

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best part about the job and keep you going. They are also flexible with school schedules.

    Cons

    They don't stand up for their employees when the customers are clearly wrong. I understand the concept of the customer is always right but they take it too far sometimes.
