    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Manager in Clemson, South Carolina

    The best thing was having paid time off: I had 80 hours paid vacation, 24 hours paid sick day, and 48 hours paid personal time. The worst thing was the healthcare plan with United Health Care. I paid for a lot of routine things without any help from my insurance company. There was no local HR person to contact for questions-- you had to call home office.

    There are actually no benefits offered because you'll only get as high as part time. Even if you're "Promoted" to supervisor, you will still continue to be part time. No benefits are offered except a 401k plan.
