    Pros

    Fun place to work, nice regular customers, not to strict on being late or absent

    Cons

    Hardly gives raises, the start you out with 7.50-8 bucks, lazy managers who try put all of the work on the store associates. The hours suck, most part time never become full time, no discounts, no holiday pay for part time, overworked for little pay. They ask you to move store to store and schedule u one week them the next you may hve no hours. In two years I've had one raise and I know more than all the stickers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the work they do. Stop making them travel store to store. Get managers who actually wanna be there.
