    (My) senior management are very responsive and respectful

    Cons

    [Universal Cons]
    Not enough help to achieve the level of customer service that senior management expects and store level employees wish they could provide.
    High Stress

    Advice to Management

    Some excellent managers (mine included) and some not so excellent; communication and respect are important. Listen to the problems and have 2 way conversations.

    Pros

    Great benefits considering the job, great management. Since merger, corporate is always working to make things better for customers and employees. Management focuses on the growth of employees. Rather than always firing and disciplining people, management focuses on rehabilitation and training. Management hiring usually comes from within so there is a lot of potential for individual growth.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything worth mentioning.

    Pros

    Managers are great; coworkers are awesome! They work around your schedule and are always helpful. Customers are great and very patient when we're extremely busy. There is upward mobility within the company which is why I applied to the position. I hope to work as a pharmacy tech someday.

    Cons

    None so far and I'm confident that there will be none.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed. They're doing a great job!
