  1. "front end worker"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Pros

    - friendly staff
    - employee discount to groceries

    Cons

    - little pay
    - customers treat you badly
    - stand all day in little cell and cannot leave it
    - short breaks
    - short lunch
    - (even though I listed employee discount as a pro, but this is a con too) Mickey Mouse sized employee discount

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind your employees, they aren't paid enough to take all the abuse from rude customers, and they are human too. Most of us are either poor students working to get through school, new graduates looking to pay back their student debt as soon as possible, or hardworking men and women who are holding multiple jobs just so they can pay off the bills and feed their families. It just makes the employees' days much harder when management sides with the customer when the customer is clearly wrong and bullying vulnerable people who can't fight back because otherwise we'd be fired.
