    Pros

    they give you a lot of hours---whether you ask for them or not

    Cons

    they hire too many people, just to let them go. they make a lot of promises to move you up, when in reality they are just fine leaving you at the level you are at

    Advice to Management

    learn to advance individuals who actually know what they are doing. my manager was terrible at creating the schedule. when i moved up and created the schedule myself, i managed to save 25% of the hours that my old manager was giving away during the week. turns out he just worked up from a dishwasher. when i was able to take over and he knew that i was able to take care of the place without cause for concern, then he took two weeks off, and was sporadic at coming in...pathetic.

    Pros

    -Free food, (you get sick of the food after a couple months)
    -Decent pay ( 9$ per hour starting)
    -Cool co-workers (most of the time..)

    Cons

    -Extremely stressful during busy hours like dinner.. (depends on your store location)
    -Lazy managers.. ( Managers get 40+ hours a week, but half the time they spend on the computer checking emails..)
    -No benefits unless you are a lead or assisstant manager..
    -Scheduling is all over the place

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee satisfaction instead of sales.. Majority of my co-workers quit from Panda because of all the stressful work you have to do with too little pay. I'm glad I'm about to start working for Best Buy..
