      Pros

      Obviously a fun environment. Good discount. Easy going. If you get promoted to front end cashier (able to do returns and exchanges) you can pretty easily be moved up to team lead.

      Cons

      I had several (3 or 4) managers during my time there because people kept quitting. My first one showed a very obvious dislike for me and it affected my work hours as she would never schedule me. My second one was the only good one. And my last management team would sit in the office all day and do nothing and handed off all of their jobs to the part timers
