    Pros

    Co workers, benefits for part time employments, close to home. good benefits when you become full time. They try their best to work around your other life requirements.

    Cons

    holidays and weekends are a must, Late hours, early hours. Pay is the same for someone whom is in a managerial role compared to someone has been with the company for 5 years.

    Pros

    if you are someone who enjoys interacting with individuals, this is a great job for you. The company also is very family oriented and seeks the best for their employees.

    Cons

    Due to working for the union, the union dues took a decent amount away from each paycheck especially for part time employees that would only be given minimum hours on some weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for part time employees to either benefit as much from the union dues being pulled out of the checks or provide more hours for all employees to make up for those dues.

  3. Boring job

    Pros

    Good for a first job, flex. scheduling, coworkers are fun, pay was decent when I was there and we also had other ways of getting extra.

    Cons

    It gets old and the constant switching of management is what killed me. Plus I wanted to finish school. So I did.

    Advice to Management

    Not advice to management... but for the big shots... stop switching managers in and out of the location. Had some pretty good ones and they got moved. Boo!

  11. not the best
