    Pros

    The best reason to work here is to make relationships with your customers. Once cullivated they can make it easier to work under the torturious and dangerous conditions.

    Cons

    Long, hard hours with constant exposure to annoying noise levels, no restroom breaks, no structured meal breaks on eight hour or more shifts, insistance on constant relentless cleaning of surfaces that are dusty and dirty within hours even though you are constantly barraged with customers. Working alone with little to no assistance.
    They expect perfection in adversarial conditions with very low salary's. For instance $8.90 after three us years of outstanding customer service and top sales for the location.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to top performers, not just untrained, cynical and childish behaving store management. It seems that those who complain the loudest and brownose the most are the only employees who are listened to.

    Also, develop challenges and concrete incentives for employees wanting to excel. After mentioning and inquiring many times, the only way to make an upward move is as mentioned above. I need a career and monetary challenge and there is absolutely none available to me.
