    Cons

    The only downside of working here,is that you dont get very many hours (unless its peak times,like Christmas).I had to work a second job at the weekend to afford my bills at home.Hours dont increase unless you are promoted to Team Leader.If that isnt an issue for you though,be sure to apply.You wont regret it!

    Advice to Management

    Carry on being as wonderful as you are.
