    Pros

    Great teamwork and very supportive team members to facilitate guests and one another.
    Great place to initiate your career and lot of opportunity to learn on the job about customer service and retail business set-up and operations

    Cons

    One really had to struggle hard to get 40 hours for the week (only the team leads and supervisor gets 40 hours week). All the other staff members complain about very non-competitive compensation structure. You only qualify for Medical Coverage once you cover around 1000 hours with the institution,
