    I have been working at Young's Market Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Very much enjoyed the atmosphere. People were fun and it's always changing with the times. I couldn't be more pleased to work for a company

    Cons

    There are a lot of shifts that you have to just toll with. These shifts make it hard to have a routine which allows you to perform at the highest level

    Advice to Management

    None at his time
