    Pros

    Schedules are extremely flexible and you set your availability. On a steady to busy day you can make around $30 an hour at the "exit" where you dry off cars and make tips. Working as an advisor (cashier) is a sales position and offers good commissions and bonuses if you are a top seller at the location.

    Cons

    You work on a call-ahead basis which doesn't guarantee hours. Hours are highly dependent on weather. Some shifts are short, some are very long but you rarely ever know when you will go home ahead of time. Management team changes regularly as managers are rotated to different locations (can be a pro or con depending on your relationship with the particular manager). You have to be comfortable working in extreme weather conditions for hours at a time--both winters and summers can have brutal days.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and act professionally. I have seen far too many coworkers get away with things they shouldn't have because the managers played favorites.
