      Pros

      You do meet new people and it can be fun to talk to them. If you really like faced-paced environments and helping with customers it is a good fit

      Cons

      You only get 15-minute breaks which go by fast out and you are constantly on your feet. Managers get extremely pushy about selling cards and getting rewards( it really never stops). The workplace can get stressful especially when it is really busy and clothes are EVERYWHERE. Also, other employees can be fake. Oh, and they keep changing the dress code and now everyone wears black, which I guess is fine but it doesn;t allow the emplyees to wear brand clothing which is useful for promoting.
