    Pros

    Management is great working with your availability.
    Family-like atmosphere.
    Easy, quick money.

    Cons

    Scheduling manager often under-staffed shifts.
    We often run out of rolled silverware and certain produce items.

    Advice to Management

    Never let a shift go under-staffed. Maybe a way to resolve this is to not let everyone who requested off, be off, or maybe initiate a request off cutoff line.
