    Pros

    Great discount. Managers are fun and easy to get along with. Never a boring day. Meet interesting people.

    Cons

    They base their entire payroll budget on sales goals that don't account for a lack of foot traffic or changing neighborhoods. They gamble with the budget and hourly employees pay for it in huge cuts and reductions. They have a lot of turn over because who can live paycheck to paycheck with 10 hours a week?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the payroll budget and give dedicated hours for tasks and stellar employees that go above and beyond.
