      Pros

      Loved my job and loved the people I worked with.

      Cons

      Poor management. My manager continually screwed up and blamed it on other employees so we got in trouble instead of her. Was also verbally mean and would shame/ embarrass you in front of customers and other employees. Nobody was ever fired she just bullied you until you quit
