    Pros

    discount (i guess that's the only pro).

    Cons

    Rude staff was the main problem. Managers had preferential treatment. Lack of diversity. Bullying in the workplace. lack of communication between staff and managers. Mangers did not listen to my concerns or issues and showed favouritism. Forced to do overtime whether you liked it or not. Forced to work 7-day shifts without a day off as they choose when you can have it.
