    I worked at Carson's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, fun job while going to college, good discount for being an employee

    Cons

    Holiday hours were ridiculous, it did not matter if you were a good employee that did work assigned to you and never asked off or if you were a bad employee that didn't do assigned tasks and asked off/did not show up for work, management treated everyone like they were bad employees most of the time
