Good Company, Low Pay, Few Hours If You're Not Full-Time

Community Relations Manager (Former Employee)

ProsUsually fun, like-minded co-workers; good discounts; great for people who like interaction and being up on their feet.

ConsMinimal hours available to part-timers; stores frequently understaffed due to lack of hours; may become repetitive or boring to some.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
