    I worked at Stewart's Shops full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's easy to rise up in the company. Regular raises based on merit. Possible to get profit sharing if you have good sales skills. Private retirement accounts funded by company for those who work at least 1000 hours a year.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get time off and difficult to call in. You're on your feet the entire shift. Can be very fast paced. Need to be good with customers. Most important is that every store is different, the culture, the bosses, the coworkers. Therefore, your experience with the company can vary depending on location. Always try to find a store with a good manager, it can change how you are trained and what you are trained, and the experience you have with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Set training standards company wide. You can have clerks doing audits in one store and then go to another and the employees will have no idea what a dip/coffee audit is.

    I worked at Stewart's Shops part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was easy to have an audience with anybody up to regional middle management.

    Cons

    The rate of turnover meant that their was constant on-boarding of new employees. Stewart's has thorough systems in place, but it meant that the training period was long and often interfered with potential shop growth.

    Advice to Management

    Having more staff on to improve customer service in busier shops.

    Keep working to ensure all stores are equally good! I was lucky that my store had a great manager running it but not everywhere is like that!
