    -great for students
    -carefree type of environment
    -ability to work your way up to more of a managerial type position

    Cons

    -sometimes you get rude customers, as with any other store, but you just have to deal with it
    -supervisors can also be rude, some lack basic manners.

    Advice to Management

    -do not put teenagers in supervisor positions, most of them are not mature enough to handle the tasks appropriately
    -please allow more flexibility in scheduling, sometimes the workers just need a weekend off
