    Pros

    They make you feel at home and everyone is very friendly. Ability to get additional hours is always possible.

    Cons

    Only part time available. 6 day work week is mandatory. No way to advance, and it's basically a layover job unfortunately as the people I worked with were great.

    Advice to Management

    Make the work week 5 days as opposed to 6.

  6. Not too bad

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility and also great friends that you meet that work at waldbaums

    Cons

    There is no advancement since the company has been going down the tubes, or if you know someone in management really well you might have a shot of climbing up the ladder. You have no chance at getting full time there because I do not think they they will last in the next 5 years with all of the stores closing down.Management has no regards to their employees in their safety. A good example is when it starts to have a snowstorm outside and it gets dangerous outside to drive they will still keep the store open just for the possibility to having customers.

    Advice to Management

    . Treat your employee's like actual human beings not another number!!!
