    Pros

    My managers always threw parties for the employees or bought us lunch.

    Cons

    The pay sucked and so did the hours and it's really hard to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating your employees the way you do, but pay them better. You're a multi billion dollar corporation for Christ's sake, start paying them more than 7.50.
