    Pros

    Good job for college student because of flexible scheduling. The GM would give us a form to fill out listing when we were available to work, and would make a schedule accordingly. Paid every two weeks. Opportunity for extra shifts (at least where I worked) Opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Low pay for a lot of responsibilities.
