    Pros

    Pay is above minimum wage, great discounts, get to meet awesome coworkers, room for growth.

    Cons

    Management sucks! Managers aren't properly trained. Aren't efficient with doing schedule and making sure everyone has a fair amount of hours. They abuse their authority and try to threaten sick employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, protect your employees from irate customers, value your employees and remember how you felt when you were in our position, before you got that salary.
