    Pros

    Very flexible schedule at my specific location. Decent pay. Not micro-managed.

    Cons

    There is very little training. The supervisor is way too laid back. He allows certain employees to do very little, then expects those of us who actually care about what kind of job we do to pitch in and do their job as well. Benefits are not very good. They are a company that is very reactive rather than proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Be very careful who you place in a supervisory role. My supervisor had no previous supervisory experience, and received very little training, and it shows.

    Pros

    Free mediocre food. Set schedules.

    Cons

    They lie about EVERYTHING!
    Grossly incompetent administration
    Will not put any effort into keeping any promises.

    Advice to Management

    Stop deceiving your workers and promising raises, benefits, promotions ect. and NEVER delivering.

    Pros

    No weekends. That's okay I guess.

    Cons

    Poor hours. Poor pay. Poor management. Poor training. Poor work ethic. Poor service. Management still doesn't know how to do his job.

    Advice to Management

    This man should talk less and work more. He needs to manage. He ran the store into the ground.

    Pros

    Can't think of any THAT EXIST working for this company. And I seriously doubt it will ever change without a complete overhaul of Corporate Management to begin with and work their way down.

    Cons

    Middle management, on site management, lack of training from the beginning of hire date, awful hours and too many that weren't specified during interview, THE WORST PAY RATE for the amount of work that has to be done. Never enough staff hired and overtime basically not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management or have the current ones learn how to run a business and treat the people working for them better.

    Pros

    Management was always there when I needed assistance with a job issue.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is that they only offer part-time to vending attendants.
