    Pros

    The fellow employees are generally nice and will be willing to help you out if you have any questions.

    There are a few times when customers are rude and or angry. Also as a cashier you are timed so speed is crucial.

    Pros

    Had a job at a solid, respectable growing company that cares about the customer and the community.

    Cons

    Lots of opportunity but hard to move around, no set programs or defined courses of action to help facilitate movement between jobs or departments.

    Advice to Management

    set up some type of mentoring program, or class structure that allows employees to build and grow their skill set which would help facilitate movement between jobs or departments.

    Pros

    If you work hard, you can add a lot of skills and knowledge that can help you launch a career. Benefits are actually pretty decent if you are full time.

    Cons

    Very stressful as is any retail job. Constant loads of work and a decent amount of turn around.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. If you hire more, everyone is less stressed and is able to do their job more successfully.
