The manager team is very unfair and snobbish.

Pros

You get to meet some very nice people and maybe even hear a story from a customer.

Cons

Favoritism was the it is and many good employees quit because of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, they might know more than you think.

    Pros

    - OK working environment
    - nice employees for the most part

    Cons

    - Pay: Raises and promotion seems based on who sucks up to managers the most and not based on how hard one works
    - Shady managers: I have known multiple managers who were busted for stealing money from employees and the business

    It was okay, reasonable for a first part-time job during the summer.

    Pros

    Good, helpful staff. Most people were working PT though many were FT. I had a good time with the associates.

    Cons

    Management could be overbearing. Some managers were pretty insulting to those working FT who weren't seeking a college degree.
