      Pros

      Atmosphere is great and laid-back. I never really find myself stressed at work. This would be a great first job for people beginning to enter the workforce, such as people in high school.

      Cons

      Pay isn't great. I only make 7.25 per hour at my location.

      Pros

      Fun, laid-back atmosphere, great coworkers.

      Cons

      Tasks aren't often explained in detail and busy days can be extremely hectic and uncoordinated due to management. Most shifts are late closings.
