      Pros

      Discount, environment (depending on store). It's a chill job it just depends on the team you have. It can be fast paced at times. It's a good starting job especially for high schoolers.

      Cons

      Poor Hours unless you have an open flexibility, Promotions are very limited, No raise, Unstable team (sometimes), be prepared to pick up slack of others.
