    Pros

    You meet many people and build connections with coworkers and customers. Its almost like depending on the location you become family.

    Benefits after a year.

    10% discount after three months.

    You can now whatever you like as long as its work appropriate such as : no flip flops, spaghetti straps, ect. ( after all you want to wear protective gear, to reduce chances of injury)

    1hour lunch break and 2 paid 15 minute breaks

    Great Team ( depending on location)

    Teaches you social skills

    Cons

    Management can suck depending on location

    No set schedule unless you are a good worker and appeal to management or you're a department manager.

    Sometimes overworked due to under-staffing.

    Some coworkers are lazy and you have to pick up their slack

    No pay on holidays

    Advice to Management

    I understand that you've all put in your 15+ years but please have respect and value for the associate. ( especially if the associate is punctual and actually does their job)

    Pros

    Associates (Some), 401k, discounted tuition, 1 hour lunch break

    Cons

    Low pay, insane amount of work, constant understaffing, poor management, irregular schedule

    Advice to Management

    don’t talk down on associates, you are not any better, less arrogance, more work and organization, don’t just do the right thing when “company” is coming. Work like they are coming every day. Don’t talk about associate’s personal business to other associate’s. It’s unprofessional and against ethics.
