    Pros

    good benefits, free drinks on the clock, great partner discounts, friendly atmosphere with good workers. Managers usually always wanted you to succeed and helped out any way they could.

    Cons

    Sometimes, you would need to close one night and open the store the next. Openings can be pretty brutal and your social life will diminish because of it. However, the free caffeine did help on the extra long morning shifts.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would to keep your eyes open for those who truly have what it takes to be the next shift, or assistant store manager. Learn to be friendly with your employees, but not their best friend.
