    Pros

    secure pay and hours
    paid sick and annual leave

    Cons

    Don't have alot of input in any business matters. Hard for change to be implemented. In a store aspect there is not alot of growth in career. Once you have achieved store management role, there is no internal employment consideration for higher Job's within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure there are enough staff members on to achieve store standards as well as rotation of jobs. Although we are expected to be of efficiency, we are pushing the boundaries as some expectations are of a two person job.
