    Pros

    Great work environment. Pay is great for those working through college for part time.

    Cons

    Management can be a little iffy at times - do not give Checkout Coaches as much credit as they deserve

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to actually do things in your department. i.e. IF you are a Front End Manager you should be able to do an override for a cashier if Checkout Coaches are busy elsewhere.
