Pros

The people are nice, for the most part. It's a job and you'll always have 40 hours a week. They rarely fire people.

Cons

You will never be promoted. The turnover rate is extremely high; most of the people that work there are temps so think about this before you accept full time employment with them. You will be underpaid. The management has little to no training and can be very juvenile. It is best to only work here temporarily until you find a good job.

Advice to Management

Go to some sort of management training. Hire assistant supervisors who have management experience. Promote and reward people who do well.
