    Great entry level job. Started when I was 16 and moved up quickly by always staying when they needed me, picking up shifts, and always providing excellent customer service.

    Cons

    After 5 years and a full time status I still didn't make over 10 dollars an hour.

    Pros

    Management was always nice, and helpful.

    $7.25 in an area where $10 entry level jobs aren't hard to find is awful, especially for how disgusting the work is.
