Pros

After 2-3 years, you start getting seniority and do not have to work the closing shifts. If you are in a store with a high turnover, you may even be lucky to choose a few of your shifts.

Cons

Management absolutely does not care about you. To them, you are just a number and they will treat you how ever they deem necessary to achieve results. I understand a company needs to be profitable, but not at the expense of a horrible morale. The policies are so meaningless seing as half the people follow them and the other half don't. The pay sucks, seeing as it took me seven years to only get $11.50 an hour. You top out at $12 and change and after that you are done moving up..

Advice to Management

Treat your cashiers with respect. Front End is supposedly the most important area of the store because it leaves a lasting impression? Prove that it means something by being kind to your front end.

    Pros

    This place has a high salary but the work is still more than the pay is worth. I love being a Technician but I am not treated with the respect I deserve from my current company.

    Cons

    It is extremely draining, there is always way more work to do than can be done and even when you are doing your best it just doesn't seem to be enough in a rural area.
