    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Card Factory full-time

    Pros

    -“Normal” working hours - no late nights -Usually quiet

    Cons

    -Only 30 min break for any shift under 12h -Micro-managing every employee -Care more about business than employees -As a keyholder you only get ‘management wage’ for hours that you are actually in charge, if there is a senior management on a shift with you, you only get paid minimum wage, but you are still expected to keep an eye on other employees, finding things to do, pretty much managers jobs
