      Pros

      Very good management that helps you be successful, upbeat and fun, gives you freedom of expression with clothing and style (you can dye your hair any color, have any haircut, have piercings, and wear ripped jeans and they have super cool tshirts that you wear as your uniform), encouraging management that helps you with whatever you need and they aren’t too strict as long as you do your job and stay on top of your responsibilities... staff is cool for the most part, owner is super nice, manager actually helps staff with whatever they need and doesn’t sit around and do nothing, employee discount, pretty good money especially in season

      Cons

      Nothing I can think of
