    Pros

    Flexible schedule. They are pretty good about giving you time off when you need it and working around school or other responsibilities.

    Cons

    Very little hours and room for growth. Senior management micromanages and rattles everyone's chain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do their jobs!

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, got a glimpse into the behind the scenes activity

    Cons

    Management is very old-school. Lots of rules. 15 minute breaks are so short. No employee discount for part-time helpers. Lots of food goes wasted and in the garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider offering "expired" food to the workers earning minimum wage as free lunch if its going to the garbage pail to be fed to pigs.
