    I have been working at Co-op part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great chance to talk to customers and become a part of the community

    Cons

    -Management just doesnt care -You are always wrong -When you are asked to work overtime, and find later on your schedule has been changed to set you in on that time, so you dont get overtime pay -6-8 hours on a till only is a joke Especially when there is no seat to sit down. -Getting a review and getting "Bellow Standard" because you are slow at stocking shelves, when all you ever do is be on till. And also... getting rated on your avaliability. -Having your availability ignored, or holiday requests ignored, even though you were the first there. -No set shift pattern, and last minute changes, making a 3 week rota schedule ineffective and useless to make plans for. -The same 16-20 songs played for almost a year, only difference was christmas -Unwillingness to waste products that should be wasted. For a part time job, this is pretty bad
