    Benefits

    - constant call ins from staff with no repercussions
    - seems as though management chooses who they want to discipline. Two employees might violate dress code but only one will get in trouble.
    - constantly running out of products
    - low morale but you are expected to do everything
    - Upper level management (director) won't even speak to you, they get someone else to do their disciplining
    - managers are improperly trained
    -often mistakes in the schedule pertaining to seniority. New employees seem to get the same hours as those who have been there much longer

    New management
