    Pros

    Great hourly rate and friendly coworkers. The pay was excellent for hourly associates and job growth was fairly neutral in context .

    There were barely any cons. There should be more activities and a better lunch break with extended pay periods and days off.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is great and everyone is pretty friendly in context and relation to the gratitude and advancement of the positions.
