    Good for Experience, Bad for Pay

    Aug 17, 2022 - Lead Sales Associate

    Pros

    -If you live with others and help pay the bills, you can typically survive - If fully staffed, usually good with time off and fitting the needs

    Cons

    - If you are the "bread winner" it is not enough to support a household. - If not fully staffed, be ready to pick up so many hours, and sometimes no days off the week.
