    Great pay, solid PTO, coworkers are great, lots of opportunity to move up in the company, fantastic training, overtime is great

    Occasionally stressful, say goodbye to holidays and weekends, no holiday pay for Thanksgiving/Black Friday, management isn't always willing to help you solve problems or sit down with neglectful associates

    Advice to Management

    We need to introduce holiday pay for Thanksgiving. No one should have to miss time with family on a holiday and not get properly compensated for it.

    Pros

    Management and associates are fun to work with and interacting with customer was a great experience.

    Cons

    There was not much of a downside other than the usual with many jobs, working with a few employees that did not value their job. In this case I pick up their slack and sometimes have to rush to get both theirs and my own tasks completed.

    Advice to Management

    Being hands-on with your employees, especially new employees, is motivational and shows them hard work pays off.
