    I worked at Old Time Pottery full-time

    Pros

    Its a fun fast pace place and everyday something new is happening, never boring. When I worked there it was Monday through Friday no weekends which is rare in retail.

    Cons

    Sometimes we got so much product in it was hard to get it all priced and out in a timely manner, or have room to put everything out.
