    Pros

    Managers are very flexible with schedule

    Cons

    Only get hours if there is a delivery truck expected; one week there may be 30 hours the next it could be 5 hours, "on call" associates are not eligible for raises - a point they don't make clear at hiring, this company does not pay a livable wage,
