    Pros

    Decent starting job.
    Nice co-workers. (When they weren't talking behind your back.)
    Flexible schedule.
    Possibility to move up. (Due to everyone quitting.)
    .25 cent raise every year.
    Customers weren't too bad.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations.
    Minimum wage starting off.
    No discounts, benefits are minimal.
    Very unprofessional.
    Store was always dirty.
    Constant theft, minimal cameras, managers never do anything even when reporting shrink.
    Low security. Left safe without a door for months, and no lock on office door.
    Managers and employees always stressed.
    Often only two people working, not enough to get much done.
    Not enough hours given to the store, not allowed overtime.
    Always get called in on your days off.
    Minimal communication.
    Discontinued ".01 cent" items are to be destroyed and thrown away. Wasteful.
    The store was always HOT, try working in 100 degree weather with no A/C.
    Get written up for mundane things.
    Got fired two days before my paid vacation time!
    This company is CHEAP, they do anything to save a dollar.
    Overall chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay a little and give the stores more hours to work with. Lower your expectations to a reasonable level and let more people work, 2 people can't do the work of 4 people. Increase communication, that'd help a little. These people need a better work environment, stop being so cheap!
