    Pros

    Great team at my store specifically.
    Great incentives & perks for hitting targets.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility for single parent. I notified of my availability yet would be scheduled during times i had no childcare then very little done to help me to work as i want to.
    TOO MANY TARGETS & LOTS of pressure to hit them when they're based on luck!

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the targets. too many questions to ask at a til meaning you end up getting daily abuse from customers & then store management
