FAVORITISM GALORE

Part-time Crew (Current Employee)

ProsGood benefits. You never have to go hungry on the job because there's always something to munch on... You can take up to a 3 week vacation - good schedule flexibility if you give enough notice of when you want time off.

ConsFavoritism is THE most negative thing that comes into play time and time again. It's true: if you don't play the game and suck up, you can be 'punished' by getting stuck on the register 5 hours daily. And they still expect you to be cheerful with every customer??! ! Review scoring can be totally biased towards the person, not on how they perform. Lack of positive reinforcement.

Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of times complaints from part-timers get 'pooh-poohed' by management. Take people more seriously when something bothers them and REALLY look into the root cause of the problem instead of considering them a pain! Limit register time to 4 hours - it will benefit the customer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
