    Former Employee - Cashier in Arlington Heights, Cook, IL

    Pros

    fun environment, easy accessibility to a wide variety of japanese products, rather kind and easy going customer base, great japanese food court on site along with a lot of great food places nearby for lunch

    Cons

    weekends and festivals are super busy, occasional arrogant /annoying /stupid customer, a lot of anime meet ups and cosplayers on weekends, chinese cashiers only talk to chinese cashiers, korean cashier only talk to korean cashiers, etc

    Advice to Management

    overall a great management but sometimes they play favorites which i guess happens in every working environment so no major complaints

    I worked at Mitsuwa part-time

    Pros

    Most of the supervisors are nice and helpful. Some of the employees there are down to earth and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    You get paid minimum wage for standing all day and having to deal with a lot of different customers (both good and bad). It seems understandable until they also make you do work that isn't included in the job description. Normally one would be okay with this, until they see that other people are paid the same amount (or more) for doing less work. E.g. a cashier who stocks and also bags and gets paid minimum wage VS a person who ONLY bags and gets paid the same amount

    Advice to Management

    I've seen the boss chat online with his laptop and read Japanese comics
