    Pros

    You learn how to communicate with customers! Most of my customers are very pleasant and the ones that are not end up smiling before they leave my register! I try using my life skills training to deal with each individual accordingly!

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel like I am being taken advantage of by my employees! Seems like the seniority status doesn't apply like they should!

    Pros

    Very friendly management, understanding about mistakes. I can't recall ever being reprimanded, just corrected and spoken to when minor mistakes were made.

    Cons

    They messed up my schedule repeatedly after I corrected them many times. As with any similar position, work can get pretty tedious.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a program to move up in the company so employees have intrinsic motivation to perform their current position as best as they can
