    Pros

    Family oriented company, privately owned, great benefits, wonderful co-worker, 6 month rasies, holiday bonuses, retail bonuses, flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Unstable schedule with varying shifts each week from closing to opening. Must be open to working nights, weekends and long hours if you're interested in making it a career.
