    Pros

    Being respected by management and working with great people who made my day happier and fun

    Cons

    Some employees still in high school who often had poor work ethics, and disrespected customers. But every entry level job will have that as they are learning what work is like.

    Pros

    Get to experience a lot of new things it's a whole me and I really do h hope I'm doing a good job I'd like to think I am.

    Cons

    Trying to learn new jobs in the department I'm in, not enough time spent on training someone before you are just thrown into it very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to listen to all complaints no matter how big or small you think it is, it means something to the person who is bringing it to your attention.

    Pros

    There's always something to do and the pay is pretty good. They have weekly pay and alternating schedules every week that help with your personal life flexibility.

    Cons

    It's takes a little while to ever get a raise or move up to a higher position. I don't like how some employees acted towards management.

    Advice to Management

    You should get rid of bad employees BEFORE it gets to the worst point .


  9. Very easygoing environment with good coworkers and management. Would be a great second job if someone needed extra money
