Pros

Friendly coworkers. Somewhat friendly management. Good cafe discounts. Good candy and drink discounts. Good movie selection.

Cons

Performance statements NOT handed out in a timely manner. Not informed of failure to follow policy. Management not always friendly.

Advice to Management

Favoritism is not a good business tool. Termination should never result if management can NOT follow own policy.

    Ok at first, but after the novelty wore off, not so much.

    Pros

    -Very friendly coworkers -Decent discount -Easy to get an initial promotion -Extremely simple work

    Cons

    -Trained to treat customers as distractions -Hourly pay not what it should be for Key Holder/Shift Manager -Despite simple work, far too many tasks are assigned at once -Lots of training modules to make well informed workers, except time is never given to take them. (management won't pay you to take them, and you can't access them off the clock) -Very little sense of a job well done at the end of a shift.

    Advice to Management

    Many (if not all) of the problems with the store I worked at could have been solved by making use of the training modules provided by corporate and having more people in store at once to help customers and prevent shrink.
