    Fun people to work it, I enjoy the job but also can be physically demanding at times.

    Shift Leader (Current Employee) Cedar Falls, IA

    Not a good Job

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGreat for Kids, Great place to make life long connections, Good first job.

    ConsThe corporation is more fixated on how little they can pay out, than they are on how profitable they can be. They have no sense of employee retention. and instead of terminating, they suspend you for two weeks, sometimes without proper reasoning, and hand you your final check on your first day back. really not a good place to advance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your store managers adequately. Also, nobody should be running a company store individually. Pay out the bonuses promised to managers. don't tell your subordinates to "Figure it out" when they tell you they have worked 70 hours on an accounted 35 hour week.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's a very fast paced environment

    Shift Leader (Current Employee) Saint George, UT

    ProsThe coworkers are like family and it's a fun to interact with customers. The day goes by pretty quickly when your busy

    ConsThere's not much room for advancement, once you become a shift leader there's nothing more you can achieve. You only get one or two raises in a year and both were very minimum

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining is fast and easy, but if you don't catch on within the first month they consider letting you go.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
