    Pros

    shifts are fairly stable so one can anticipate and plan for their time off.
    most of the employees are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    personality rather than performance is managed.
    poor communication; promotions based on longevity rather than performance
    Poorly trained managers who choose to discipline staff on the floor in the presence of customers
    poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    More training should be given to managers.

    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 Management

    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.
