    Pros

    Learning what customer service was, how to get to customers efficiently and effectively. Learned to work in a high volume store. Made a lot of friends and personal connections.

    Cons

    Very few promotion opportunities. Hours are super scarce in the summertime. Went from about 32 during winter to about 10 during the summer with open availability. Pay isn't great for the work you do. Only 1 raise during the year.. only 32 cents? Not enough encouragement to the staff. Managers need to stop freaking out at the littlest things.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your stores. Hiring people when the shifts are going to get iffy isn't a great idea.
    Find a way to encourage the staff. There is not enough giving back to the people that pay your bills.
    Figure out a better way to handle shop lifting. FIX things when they are broken including the sensor scanners at the front of the door. Pay people more. Stop changing management!

    Pros

    A lot of discounts. The job is very easy to learn. I been there for 5 years and you gain confidences with working with people and costumer service.

    Cons

    All though it is a very good place to work the management team make it miserable. Its too much pressure and the competition makes things catty.
