Pros: great staff
Cons: not enough working hours
I worked there for about 10 years. The first owner (the one who hired me) was terrific. I was assistant manager for about 3 years before he sold. Once he sold, my hours went down drastically (from 9 hours/day to 4 hrs./day). I had to make sure the store was stocked fully for the days I was off. I got hours ONLY when they wanted to go away. I showed up to work everyday..sick, snow storms, ice storms etc. They could trust me to open/close the store as needed. I took care of orders, and got the store ready for the day. If I didn't have time to get something done, due to a busy day, or my hours just didn't offer enough time, my boss would yell at me. If I asked for more hours, my boss would yell at me. I worked very hard and was yelled at all the time for things that other people should have been doing. The store sold again in 2014 and I was told my job was safe and the new owner was taking staff in the sale. We were off for a week for renovations, and I went back to meet the new owner, and found out she knew nothing about us, and my boss had put into the sale that he had no employees to transfer in the sale. I lost my job, with zero notice.
