    Pros

    Pay is OK. Team members can make your job easier. Customers are usually nice.

    Cons

    Every position above manager acts like they are better than you. They do not want to hear any complaints. Just do it. It started off at 50 hours with 1 hour lunch you don't clock out for, now you have to clock out. This added 5 hours to my week without extra pay. I do not get to spend any time with family. My schedule is not flexible. I have to work weekends and every Monday and Friday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not treat managers of good stores the same as mangers of under performers. Give managers more time with their families. At least every Sunday off.
