I have been working at Hickory Farms part-time (Less than a year)
This job is very easy. It's almost impossible to get more than 25 hours a week, so it's a great job if you go to school or work elsewhere. If you are responsible and like talking to people, you will be able to do this job. The merchandise really does sell itself. You get a 40% employee discount which is extremely generous. Makes for very affordable Christmas gifts.
Sometimes, since it is such a small kiosk, it's hard not to get bored. If you are a clean freak like me, the whole kiosk will be clean and restocked in about 20 minutes. The pay is barely above minimum wage.
Advice to Management
Offer schedules a little further in advance. It's hard to coordinate with other responsibilities. Consider allowing seasonal employees to earn monetary sales goal incentives (commission on top of base pay). The pay is a little rough.
