    Pros

    There are some great managers and staff who can make shifts enjoyable. If you work hard your efforts can be recognised.

    Cons

    The hours are not nice, they remove your "break time" from your pay whether you take the break or not. Most of he time you won't take the full break as you are understaffed or other staff is incompetent. The pay is also for horrendous for the physical exertion you put out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of inadequate staff and reward those who come in and work hard for minimal pay.

    Doesn't Recommend
