    Pros

    At times it is easy because it is slow in the store. Your job is pretty simple, just checking out customers.

    Cons

    It can be incredibly slow and boring, but also incredibly stressful during rush hours and lunch time. Also it can be physically taxing to stand for hours on end staring into a room full of office supplies.

    Advice to Management

    Just focus on great customer service and not overwhelming the customers with help. Many customers get upset at this and also when things are not happening fast enough, so it is a matter of figuring out how to get those customers to either come at different times of day or be able to handle more customers during high volume times.

    Pros

    If you like helping people who struggle to find things in stores, this job provides minor satisfaction that you made someone's day easier. Easy work. Management mostly lets you work unencumbered by micromanaging.

    Cons

    Slow work, little recognition for your accomplishments (though this depends largely on the manager-on-duty). You can mostly count on leaving at your scheduled time (though this depends largely on the manager-on-duty). Seeing a pattern here? As with most retail jobs your manager can make or break your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Help assistant managers become more autonomous. I found most of my supervisors wanting in at least one critical area relevant to running the store, e.g. explaining tech services, running the copy station, store item locations.
