    I worked at Miner's (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Like any big box store, schedules aren't flexible and rules are strict. But they are reasonable and pay well for the work.

    Cons

    Like any big store scheduling is tough with nights, weekends and holidays. They do seem to make the effort to be fair. Union negotiates fair holiday hours and benefits..

    Advice to Management

    Only complaint is management could work to create a more upbeat environment. Some management were very cold to staff.

    I worked at Miner's part-time

    Pros

    management trusted me to get the job done

    Cons

    while I do not agree with the whole $15/hr minimum wage dilemma. The type of work I was doing was worth more than barely above the minimum.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Miner's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You always stay busy and you get paid for your breaks.

    Cons

    Management is unfamiliar with current up to date laws, and they are also rude. Also, breaks are only 15 minutes long and is almost never enough time to eat or use the bathroom.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what your employees are doing and their attitudes while working. I would also suggest that management needs to enforce requirements of viewing legal documentations which state the laws that need to be followed.

    they need to notice that talent in young employees can be more valuable than years worked by old worn out men.

    Coworkers and environment is friendly and fast paced. Lots of diverse customers and not a lot of stress or high pressure

    I have been working at Miner's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible with your school schedule. Great at understanding when you need time off (for the most part.) Fun people to work with, especially if you're in college. And both managers I've had have been great to talk to and respond very well when you excel at your job.

    Cons

    A decent percentage of workers are there solely to do the absolute minimum and pick up a paycheck. So dealing with them can be trying at times, but most of them end up turning around or quitting. There is a slight attitude of "you're replaceable". Which is true, but it is not really obscured to you, as it should be.
