    Cons

    -Some team members did not pull their weight and had an attitude when asked to -Food discount used to be 50% off with a free meal on long shifts (6+ hours) -Things get a little hectic when the manager switches every six months, and the extra work usually falls on the rest of the team. -Could be very short staffed at points, resulting in long shifts for almost everybody -Managers play favorites with hiring and promotions...

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation for tier II and III team leads (if not for all team members). A tier III's responsibilities are too close to a manager's for $10/hr.
