    Pros

    Fast-paced, always something to do, great customers overall. Typically hired very happy people.

    Cons

    Breaks were short, only 10 minutes, and this is difficult when there is always something to do and everybody would be scrambling around the entire day.

    Advice to Management

    Some people may be pretty, but if they do not know the different between a banana and an orange, please do not hire them. Or keep them.

    Pros

    Teaches stress management. During the summer, the work load can become extreme, so you learn to thrive under pressure.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth. People worked for years without being promoted, and even when they were promoted the pay raise was very small. Most did not promote.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees more, minimum wage is only going to keep high-schoolers and below applying for jobs. The company might be better served with an older staff, i.e college age +
