    Pros

    If your expectations are low, this can be a really fun job, most of the other employees are really awesome and fun to work with, the customers are usually pretty cool, and as an artist myself it's kind of nice to see all the different supplies that are available

    Cons

    it's really hard to get enough hours for a fly to live on except at Christmas, don't expect more than minimum wage- ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might be able to retain quality employees a little better if you were willing to pay more and give reasonable hours- otherwise expect to keep seeing a high turn-over rate. If you hire someone for a particular function and then have them doing something else, don't be surprised if they leave quickly.
