    You are always busy. People you work with are nice and always helpful if you have questions on anything.

    Cons

    Trying to find things in the store for people, when you are only there as a seasonal employee-floor plan was laid out strange to find toys people wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Hand out a paper with the floor plan on it to new employees so they can help people better find what they are there for.
