    Open 24/7 holiday or not, someone has to work and the same political issues you'd face in any other job.

    Pros

    good availability for grow at other locations
    benefit package is pretty good

    Cons

    - very micromanaged,
    - cut-throat,
    - too PC friendly in HR. A co-worker was fired because he said the word "vulva" in a sentence. One male employee who didn't like my co-worker reported this to HR because thought that some female employees would be offended. When HR asked the females none were, in fact most didn't remember. They let him go anyway for sexual harassment.

    Advice to Management

    stop shifting and trading budget $$$ between depts. so much. It penalizes efficiently run outlets while propping up sloppy/lazy/poor managed ones.
