    Pros

    + My store encouraged full-time employment
    + Pay was higher than expected for front end, food service should of been paid higher or had a helping hand in the back.
    + Consistently Busy

    Cons

    + Seniority/Favoritism, over work ethic
    + GM expects associates to pick up slack, understandably they make less on salary than hourly associates putting in the same time in the work week
    + High turnover, new associates expected to perform like the seniors, often don't cut it right out of training and are resented (inevitably quitting)
    + No opportunity for advancement if you are highly valued in the store
    + Corporate not in touch with individual stores needs

    Pros

    If you have the right people working in the store and enough help its a good place to work.

    Cons

    They could have better benefits for all their employees. they do not have enough help in all their stores at the peak hours when they are the busy. It would be nice if you were told when you have done a good job instead of being negative about what hasn't been done. Give other employees a chance at drifferent positions to see how they do and let them work drifferent shifts so they can see how their co-workers have to work..

    Advice to Management

    GIVE YOUR EMPLOYEES BETTER WAGES! GIVE THEM PHRAISE WHEN THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB. ITS DISSAPOINTING TO FIND OUT THAT YOU FAVOR OTHER STORES OVER OTHER ONES ESPECIALLY WHEN OTHER STORES DON'T HAVE AS MANY EMPLOYESS AND THEY ARE WORKING JUST AS HARD.
