    Pros

    can earn additional $200-$300 weekly for passing mystery shopper, has open house interviewevry staurday at union square branch, easy job if your are a cashier all you have to do is look at what the customers have selected(cause its like self serve) then ring them up. no moving required. weekly or in my case bi- weekly tips may not be much but it always bought my metro cards. weekly pay.

    Cons

    its just my misfortune that my team leader was a racist prick. but every one else is really kool from the head to the kitchen staff.

    Advice to Management

    u guys really seemed to care about us. that's good but when i started i was new to america and i did not know what to do my racist team leader was discrimating against me.. so i quit and i regretted it.
