    Pros

    good minimum wage job if your looking for little hours while going to school.

    Cons

    Horrible Management that likes to overpower its employees, does not offer much past 15 hours a week job if your lucky, gives horrible review evaluations even if your God himself, Offers little room for advancement, No praise at all only threats of losing your job if you make a mistake or criticism, overall horribly experience for a individual looking for employment that no one can live off of, Does not cover its employees when they have a work injury happen to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take management classes, learn to grow up and treat people with respect. I cannot wait to get out of this store and will be so happy when I do.
