    Pros

    Work with some really fun staff plus good discount

    Cons

    Days can get very stressful especially for managers and that can get directly passed down on you if the managers don't deal well with it. Also all shifts given to part timers are all 4.5 hours to avoid having to schedule breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Manager sale stress
