    Pros

    Good medical benefits, flexible shifts (to an extent), always moving so you're not tied to a desk all day. Pay is comparable I believe.

    Cons

    Long hrs, at times you have to work 7+ days (10hrs/day) in a row before having a day off. Can't be off with family n friends around the holidays BC you have to work. Constantly understaffed for mgmnt and don't allow hourlys enough hrs for the results the company wants to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Allot the proper amount of labor hrs to your stores to achieve the business results wanted so you don't run the good workers/mgmnt into the ground with current expectations.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, most customers are very friendly, self-rewarding work.

    Cons

    Hard work is not rewarded or even acknowledged very much, pay is horrible, no raises or benefits, no vacation days until a year of employment. We've had many good people leave to find higher paying jobs. You can easily get better pay somewhere else for the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a fair wage if you expect them to put effort into their work.
