    Pros

    If you're lucky enough to get stuck with a good crew the job isn't all that bad, most managers are willing to work with you on schedules and makes a pretty good starter job

    Cons

    Pay is low, (but what do you expect from a dollar store retail job) they usually demand more work then what time they have to offer to get jobs done, some weeks you get a good amount of work hours and some you hardly work at all, and part timers don't hardly get any benefits

    More is not always better. Stop sending so much inventory. Makes the stores look junky and hard to keep neat.
