    I worked at Dillon Companies part-time

    Pros

    I was a stay-at-home Mom, I needed overnight hours to fit my family's needs- they found me a position that so enjoyed, and worked with me on hours- also was paid extra for this shift as an over-night worker-- wonderful people on the scanning team.

    Cons

    holidays aren't optional, which is understandable- and my department Management were wonderful. Stocking trams always seemed understaffed and strapped for time

    Advice to Management

    This store needed to finish renovations and maybe hire more for stocking teams

    Be come more efficient. And learn how to react to a issue a employee is having. Don't just shrug it off they are coming to you for a reason.
