    Free food on breaks, flexible days and hours good job for students to have whilst at college or university! Only work there as your first job

    Expected me to work on the tills, at dinner on a satuday (the busiest ever!) on my second shift
    A customer threatened me and the managers did nothing about it

    Pros

    The managers are hard workers.

    Cons

    They didn't like it when you took days off even when you followed their procedure for doing so. They would hold back giving you hours on the schedule as a revenge for you requesting time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though it's a minimum wage job you should still treat your employees with dignity.
