    Pros

    Great people and fun environment. I was part time so benefits were not a factor. The pay was reasonable for the job I had.

    Cons

    The scheduling for part time employees changed too often. This made it difficult to plan my other activities. This is common with retail work, so I don't fault the manager that much.

  6. Too Stressful

    Pros

    The job is easy, besides standing all day. It's the average customer service job. People think you're dumb and worthless for being a cashier and treat you as such

    Cons

    I'm not sure how this store stays open as its management can't seem to do the simplest of tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop "losing" employee requests. If you treated employees better you wouldn't not have as bad of a turnover. Most employees do not last longer than 3 months, and it's not the job that causes them to leave.

    Pros

    Personable employees. Nice managers. Clean.

    Cons

    Unwillingness to adhere to scheduling conflicts of the employees. Not giving enough notice of future weekly schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Please realize that employees lives should not revolve soully around work. Managers can make their own schedules that suit their lives lower level employees should be able to also.
