    Pros

    Great discount, lovely staff, certain stores will do Pot Lucks and staff parties which are lovely

    Cons

    Pay greatly sucks especially when having the experience and have been working for the company for a long time. Noticed also that most stores aren't giving the healthcare plan that you're supposed to get after 6 months (full time, and 1 year for part time)

    Advice to Management

    Give staff better pay especially when having the experience and maybe hire more security guards..
