    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Low Insurance Costs, Great People

    Cons

    Retail, Working Holidays, New Scheduling System

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers manage their stores instead of dictating staffing levels based on aggregate data and averages across the company. The shift times that work in one area of the country may not be appropriate or needed in another. Also, customers don't like it when they have to navigate around people stocking the shelves during the day. They want it done overnight when they're not inconvenienced.
