    Pros

    The people you work alongside are friendly, HR is good about accommodating people with outside commitments such as other jobs or school, the job itself is rather easy. Diverse community, open culture.

    Cons

    You will have multiple bosses, many of whom have wildly different expectations of what kind of work you should be doing. Infrequently, guests you service will be rude. Expectations are often unrealistic (finish 4 hours of work in 2 hours). Management rarely accepts excuses, no matter how legitimate.

    Advice to Management

    Things need to get done at certain times, and I can appreciate that, but it's not always possible to get things done on time every time. Coach management to consider how a particular team member's workload might change day to day based on guest population and product sold, as well as various other store-based factors.

    Felt like part of a team, Worked with my schedule, Great as a first job for someone.

    Long hours, Low pay for the job that you are doing. Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers the majority of us don't like to complain about the workplace but when we do bring something up its nice to know that our voices are heard.

    Pros

    Great community, friendly managers, team members go out of their way to assist each other.

    Cons

    Back breaking work, especially if you're on hardlines. My spine felt pretty bad after long shifts, and wear good walking shoes, because you will be standing a ton.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
