    I have been working at M.A.C part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -great hourly pay -fun work environment -extensive training and education -gratis

    Cons

    -NO saturdays off. Ever. Even on your paid vacation. Not gonna happen -short staffed ALL THE TIME because they dont want to hire more people -if you call out when you’re sick, you still get documentation -because there’s only a handful of employees, flexibility on shifts is stiff

    Advice to Management

    The location i work at has stellar management. But other locations need to know that your manager should be a stellar representative of your brand. Fire the lazy people with awful attitudes and give the opportunity to grow to someone who is passionate and hungry for success
