-fun co-workers (most of the time)
-holiday presents after few months of working there
-profit sharing every February after working your 1st 1000 hours
-lots of small incentives for part time employees
-benefits if you want them

Cons

-general managers will fire you if you inform corporate when they are breaking corporate's rules
-general managers are very unprofessional and not held accountable by corporate
-general managers threaten to not send home managers and constantly keep them hours past the time they were scheduled to get out
-general managers put a lot of pressure on managers and yell and/or cuss them out on a daily basis
-managers work 40-60 hours a weeks, sometimes 60+ at time

Advice to Management

I wish corporate kept a better eye on their general managers, held them more accountable, and insisted that they treat the team members with respect and dignity.
