    BEST Customers in the World

    Pros

    LifeWay has and will always have the best customers to work for. They drove me to serve them to the best of my ability every day. Working in a smaller city, staff and customers became family.

    Cons

    With the non-profit status, it was hard to entice part-time employees with pay. The staff was wonderful but most retailers in the area could compensate them more or provide more hours for them.

    Pros

    Sunday's off Flexible with scheduling Devotional and prayer time

    Cons

    Pay is horrible and you can't survive without a second job. They will do anything when you leave to not pay vacation time owed even if it has to do with improper job codes when you get hired.
