    Pros

    It's a job in a horrible economy.

    Cons

    You make min. Wage even after being here for five years I only get a five cent raise a year. No health care. Management is a joke. Corporate is an even bigger joke with their consistent policy changes that make no sense. In fact corporate does nothing but make the place run harder. No vacation time for associates. Hours are only sort of flexible meaning if your whole store consists of students then it becomes your problem not the managers. They hire managers who can't manage their way out of a wet paper bag let alone communicate. Constantly understaffed. You are expected to work for minimum pay and do three cashiers worth of work and a mangers job on top of it. And best part is, they don't care because there is another high school kid lined up ready to take the job that you need to barely scrape by with. And let's not forget we can only work up to 25 hours max now because they don't want to give us health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate. By communicate I don't mean gossiping in the back room. Learn to run a store. Learn how to tell corporate you are going to put more people on the schedule whether they like it or not. And corporate hire some one who graduated with a business degree will you.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours Full-time employees have access to health insurance

    Cons

    Bad management. The company seem to hire managers with no people's skills. They don't treat employees in a fair manner. Managers demand respect but are not willing to give it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to appreciate hard working employees so the company can move forward. It seems that when management wants to fire someone they will give the person too many responsibilities in order to make the employee quit or to find excuses to fire him/her. This has led to a very unprofessional environment which deteriorates the company
