    Pros

    Everyone knows who Garrett is and so they are all excited to smell it while going through the airport.

    There was many times in which I was working up front alone. So I was have to work both the filling of the orders and then taking the money from the people.

    Pros

    Meeting great people! Being able to be apart of a Chicago tradition! Being able to make customers happy with fresh product! Being able to explain why Garrett popcorn is the best choice.

    Cons

    Management disrespectful and attitudes are ridiculous! They think everybody is the same! You get attitude for everything! Made up rules! It feels like high school! Everybody out to get everybody! It's gossip heaven! Employees against management team is ridiculous but it all starts with how you respect people!

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking everybody is the same! Give everybody an opportunity to show the true person they are! Not everybody is a liar! Stop being so disrespectful and stop giving attitude for no reason! Learn to give respect to get respect! We are all humans! We all have a job to do! Learn to listen and understand!
