    Pros

    It was a good experience , after you learn all the company’s criteria. It also helps to complete all the training you need to and get used to the traffic during the holidays. It has a pretty good , heathy pay too as a seasonal employee.

    Cons

    Sometimes it’s hard to get someone open to having the patience of teaching what needs to be taught. Depending on the store you work with, managers that are either in one accord, or ones with different views that all give you different instructions . This could be really difficult when you have a consistent task to do , but not instruction. Stock staff need more help around seasonal time for sure . Patience won’t hurt either

    Pros

    If you need to outfit your kitchen and/or baseline retail experience for future employment, this is the ticket. 40% discount on most things is nice, and the occasional bit of free food based on good performance is good.

    Cons

    Pay is lacking, payroll system isn't as tight as it should be, overly strict and unclear corporate policies, and the turnover rate is absolutely insane for management. And the number of staff hired out of desperation has led to very poor quality at times, including hostile and racist people.
