Pros

Easy enough work, flexible schedule allows you to have a life outside of work. Food is frequently provided for the crew.

Cons

No upward mobility. You're either a crewmember or a mate, or if you're lucky, a merchant, which apparently is TJ's way of favoring people. In my store all of the merchants are people who have stepped down from mate, but still get paid a lot of money to basically hang out in the office all day.

Advice to Management

Stop wasting time with the fast track development hires and promote from within.
