    It's about people and the service or experience provided to the external and internal guests connect and get to know the people.

    Pros

    Teaches stress management. During the summer, the work load can become extreme, so you learn to thrive under pressure.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth. People worked for years without being promoted, and even when they were promoted the pay raise was very small. Most did not promote.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees more, minimum wage is only going to keep high-schoolers and below applying for jobs. The company might be better served with an older staff, i.e college age +

    Pros

    Decent product, plenty of hours for shift leads. During warmer weather, there is a lot of business, which can result in a lot of tips and hours to go around. Many of the customers are quite friendly.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, constantly being asked to cover shifts, often understaffed for peak periods. District management pushes for tactics that often result in poor customer service, resulting in low morale among team members and resentment for the company and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on genuine, positive customer service and less on the bottom line. Many customers get aggravated when information is obscured and they feel as though they are being pushed to pay more than they wanted. The prices are already too high.

  9. Good experience for your first job. Helps you become more respectful or minimum wage employees.

    Pros

    It never gets boring. You're constantly on the move doing things and interacting with customers or co-workers. It is a fast paced and lively environment.

    Cons

    The pay should be higher for the work you put in every day.
    The company only gives you a yearly raise of 15 cents unless you get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your employees to be as valuable as they are. They make the store function and keep everything together on a day to day basis.

  10. Team leader
