    Pros

    Good discount, nice coworkers, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Unfair treatment of cashiers, loyalty sign-ups more important than hard work

    Advice to Management

    Please make the loyalty percentages fair for the employees. It doesn't make any sense that one "no" needs to be fixed by five "yes'".
