    Pros

    Lovely coworkers Okay as a first job

    Cons

    Long hours Roster is never done in advance

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder to staff and stop expecting staff to go above and beyond for a minimum wage job. Also do the roster at least two weeks in advance. People have lives outside of JD and have plans.
