    I have been working at Stew Leonard's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Mostly genuinely nice people to work with.
    - Good food from the kitchen department.
    - You get paid time and a half on Sundays.

    Cons

    - Management gets treated like royalty whereas the hourly workers don't get treated too well.
    - You basically have to work every weekend and major holiday; having a social life is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    - Thanksgiving and Easter should be time spent with family.
    - employees should receive a discount on products.
