    Cons

    Too much pressure from the mystery shopper whence it depend the "bonus" Often happen to work "unpaid" overtime to finish daily duties Limited progression career if you're not in the state of grace of the Head of your working Area In many cases I've weighed up a big incompetence and lack of skills between Team Leader and Assistant Manager's position
