    Pros

    Make a difference in the lives of the people you meet. Meet nice people. Great support from Dist Mgr . No micromanagement. 32 hrs is full time so you qualify for insurance benefits that start 30 days after hire! Retail but you never work late. Get bank holidays off.

    Cons

    Standing on hard store floors for long periods of time. Just started but the outlook is good.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more HR staff . Just started but will update later

    Keep up the mentality of the employees out in the field. It is good motivation to know we are taken care of.
