    Pros

    Good pay
    Reasonable hours
    Decent employees
    Clean environment
    Kind boss

    Cons

    Rude managers, I got fired while I was still in probation, did training for a whole month for hours on end, and when I asked they're like ohhh we will get you on the floor then, never noticed I was still training while others only got 2 days of training. After four weeks I got fired because I was slow only at till, worst way to lay me off also. Assistant manager never gave me any positive feedback. Pretty much managers choose their favorites here

    Advice to Management

    Be more grateful for your employees, they work hard as is
