    Pros

    - The people - both those you work with and those you serve are interesting and varied. I found i've made friends for life and professional contacts.
    - They allow you to work for them again if you go away to uni if there are sufficient vacancies.
    - They're a very reputable company.
    -They get to know you as a person, you're not just a number. They care.
    - They're professional and respectful and adhere to their own high standards most of the time.
    - They organise social events for staff to bring the team together and motivate.
    -They respect sick-leave, bereavement and personal issues and provide accordingly.

    Cons

    -The managers don't phone you back when they say they will which makes communication awkward when you're away.
    -Some workers can be quick to judge and gang up on others which is unprofessional and counterproductive to store moral.
    -The work can be tedious, eg shelf-stacking for 7 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your staff more and do some of the jobs they do to integrate with them, gain more respect and know what's really going on in the work place on a daily basis.
