    Pros

    It's a paycheck. It's pretty wasy to get away with doing very little. To sum it up, it's a lot like working for the federal government...no matter if you're good at your job and go above and beyond or suck at your job and do as little as possible, you're going to get paid the same either way.

    Cons

    Low compensation, total incompetence of middle and senior management, zero recognition and feedback, very little training, unproductive communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your business! Just because you've always done something a certain way doesn't make it "law". Learn the business, look beyond the immediate future and adapt accordingly.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, fantastic supervisor and assistant manager, good money(if you were given good hours) friendly customers, hub of the community

    Cons

    If the manager takes a dislike to you then you are basically doomed, manager is a bully, manager is rude to customers, manager threatens staff by keeping staff wanted signs when we didnt need extra. Manager likes to start petty arguments. Manager likes to cut everyones hours back to bare minimum then take on two bottom level members of staff on high contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bullying your staff, slamming doors, giving people the silent treatment, swearing, arguing and being a general nasty pasty will not earn you any respect as a competent manager. Customers are noticing and taking their custom elsewhere. Way to go running the shop into the ground

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
