    I worked at The Pantry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free drinks and great for networking with managers of other businesses and hook ups on events if you maintain strong employee-customer relationships.

    Cons

    Long hours, unreliable coworkers, double shifts, no appreciation, forced to upsell items that no one wants or your job is at risk. Management I've dealt with are sneaky and will write you up for the smallest of things. They spend more time trying to get you fired than helping you further your chances of promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates with respect and appreciation. Not all will do their best but for those who do, don't take advantage of it. Consider people's financial situations when cutting hours to save your own job and learn to be more considerate of your employees with secondary employment seeing as you'll only get paid but so much in your position.
