Long hours on your feet the whole time, not that much down time, a lot of tedious (but necessary) shelving and organizing work

    Pros

    Flexible hours for college students or people with other jobs. Diverse and educated group. Discount is 30% for merchandise and 50% for food and coffee.

    Cons

    Horrible pay for all positions. Hours can be sporadic or non existent at times. You should consider working for this company only as a part time employee that needs flexibility. No one that is in a management position or lead position is satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with consistent scheduling, lead by example, and cut back on the micromanaging.
