    Pros

    Pretty steady hours. Good pay if you ask for it.

    Cons

    In order to move up in the company no matter the store you have to literally be screwing management or kissing butt. You have to beg to get paid what you rightfully deserve. Would recommend for high school and college students but that’s it.
