    I worked at Duane Reade

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, easy job to hold while in school. Are small opportunities to advance. Cashier to head cashier, to shift leader to Asst. Manager to store manager.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Not an equal opportunity workplace even though claims to be. I witnessed a Haitian Immigrant stock on stock position because of poor English.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and be happy that you are making at least 5 times as much money as your cashier and stock subordinates. And odds are you lack the education that they do.
