    Pros

    °Customers are great, and actually, make it worth working here.
    °Give plenty of hours if you need it.
    °lots of opportunities to go to different departments.

    Cons

    °Management doesn't communicate well with employees.
    °Will be scheduled outside of a availability hours.
    °Don't inform you of schedule changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, work would be perfect if management would get their act together. They're forgetful when it comes to employees, and are reluctant to admit their mistakes. Many people at our store quit because of the management, and it isn't hard to see why. It's a good starting job, but full time isnt worth the stress.
