Not enough responsibility

Cashier/Sales (Former Employee)

ProsI wasn't micromanaged and I loved my coworkers. My manager gave me extra hours when she realized that I was such a good employee, and it is nice to be appreciated.

ConsNever got my discount card, not much communication between management and part time cashiers like me, and I had no responsibility to make my own judgments. Got thrown under the bus for a situation that occurred during a closing shift with a new manager and first time closing lead. Too much emphasis on getting email addresses.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just fire someone for the sake of firing them because something bad happened.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
