Physical labor will take a toll after some time.
Management rarely listens to part time employees.

Take the time to listen to your part timer crew, don't forget to treat them as individuals with valuable ideas, not just part of your workforce. Give credit where it is deserved.

    Pros

    The people that tend to work there are all really great, interesting, creative people. Also, the customers are loyal, and you get to know them.

    The shifts are long and some tasks are tedious. The overnight shifts can be mind numbing and monotonous. But overall it's a pretty great place.

    Advice to Management

    Some of them aren't necessarily the most qualified managers, and should be more inclined to taking advice and growing as leaders.
