    Pros

    There are chances to get good hours. You'll mostly have good interactions with customers. Also, the busier the day is, the faster your shift gets over.

    Cons

    Standing up for long hours, some times in the same spot if it gets busy. Holidays aren't so easy to get off, and in fact you are instructed to not request any off.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and CSM is generally good with working with everyone's schedule and requests for time off. Diversity with employment...was recently recognized for fair employment/treatment of the LGBT community.

    Cons

    Some managers show favoritism when advancing employees within their store. I was once told that I would have gotten a higher position but that particular manager needed someone that could just 'jump into the role with little training' because they did not have time to train someone. Also, corporate sets unrealistic rules like not allowing employees to even have a bottle of water HIDDEN at their register. Another con is not having many full time positions available. Raises and pay are also not commensurate with experience and job responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees fairly and give capable employees the chance to advance.
