    Pros

    Good clean stores. Continued expansions allowed for great growth in the company.

    Cons

    Just like most retail, district and regional managers, acted like they didnt understand the reality of cutting labor, causing lower levels of store conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Taking away labor is really hurting the level of customer service in stores. It also brings down the morale of employees in turn causing lower production.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great people to work with, easy job.

    Cons

    Working early morning hours takes some time to get use too. Scheduling system not utilized well. Poor communication throughout departments.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more effectively most of the time one person doesn't know what the other is doing it makes the work place stressful.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great (for the most part)

    Cons

    Will change your schedule night before your day off, will skip your breaks, didn't train well

    Advice to Management

    I was never actually told anything, just thrown in, and still get in trouble for accidents (that happen rarely), too stingy about scheduling

    Pros

    Easy Job Great Co-Workers Light Activity Simple Tasks Received Proper Training

    Cons

    Slow Days Management To much standing around Repetitive Lack of benefits

    Advice to Management

    There should be some improves made throughout the entire store. The main one is to have enough cashiers on-hand when rush hits.
