    Pros

    Friendly people, great customers (no matter what store I've worked in), the benefits they have and offer

    Cons

    Schedule constantly changes at the last minute, they're constantly moving management around, they hire and rehire alot of the wrong people, they don't give adaquet training, the pay doesn't match the experience, they tell you things will happen and/or change yet never follow through with any of it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to take a look at the things you do and how you train other members of management, learn to treat all your employees equally, try to manage a schedule that you can maintain and not have to change it several times throughout the week (especially without asking the employee if they are able to work with the changes instead of not asking and leaving them in a not so good situation
