    Pros

    Great real world experience and looks great on a resume for future jobs. Good training as well and overall a great experience.

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement were nearly impossible as their are so many different group leaders seeking the exact same thing.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more one on one training to new group leaders as there is not much advice for people who are on second or third shifts.

    Pros

    The money is great!
    When you try something new or make a change you can see the results because the numbers are so big!

    Cons

    You won't get to make a lot of decisions!
    The new culture change is so far not very effective.
    Benefits could be better!

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging us!

    Pros

    Team is second to none and opportunities to lead and develop are there if you are willing to stretch outside your comfort zone.

    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.
