      Pros

      Boss was friendly, pleasant to work at, pay was decent for hours worked, an overall pleasant experience, would work here again

      Cons

      Long hours, long way to travel, would be helpful if there were more stores in rural areas. Small nitpick, as I don't have a car.

      Pros

      Get 1 hour lunch People are nice and willing to help They are understanding if you have a doctor appointment and will not book you during that time period on that particular day.

      Cons

      There is no set schedule and some weeks you will work 20 hours ,others 30 + hours, and sometimes 40 hours Working during the holiday Expect to stand for long hours (besides breaks) Depending on the manager there will be times when you will not get a break especially on truck days when we are not finish with the truck.
