    Pros

    Not a difficult job most of the time. Just had to stack shoes and watch the time creep by.

    Cons

    I hated putting up with some of the customers. Management was also pretty strict regarding time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being more lenient regarding time off around holidays please!
