Lots of thorough training.
Friendly staff
Cost and customer dirven

Sometimes is is hard to know what absolutely needs to be done and what is more relaxed and is not dire to company success (maybe just preferences of managers)

Advice to Management

Have more clear guidelines of what NEEDS to be done and what would be nice to get done.

    Pros

    Discount. There are no other pros to this [expletive deleted] job.

    Cons

    Boring. Menial. You could not possibly survive off of the income you make here. Their on call policy for assigning shifts is ridiculous, albeit apparently common in retail. Why does anyone work in this industry longer than a month???
