Pros: being your own boss!
Cons: long hours
I worked six days a week from 7.30 am until 4.30pm.As the owner of the business it was ultimately my responsibility to employ staff, shopping,maintanence,cooking, paying the rent/bills on time,Health and Safety,Food Hygeine and upmost the care of my customers.

It is hard work running you own business and employing staff.You need to be diplomatic and – more... understanding of their needs at all times.

The most enjoyable part of my job was to see my customers receiving quality service. – less

Strict work place
Subway (Current Employee), Ocala, FLJune 3, 2014
Pros: free drinks.
Cons: no breaks and rare help during shifts.
Working at Subway isn't that bad. It can be harder then most people expect because it isn't all about just making sanwhiches. At work you have dishes to do constantly, food to prep, break to bake, charts to be filled in, and much more. The co-workers are nice but don't always do wht they need to and it makes things harder. I used to like working there – more... but after being there over 2 years I don't really like it anymore. – less

Stressful job at times and a great deal of picking up slack for others
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Concord, NCApril 19, 2014
Pros: healthcare, constant workload, etc.
A typical day at work could be anywhere from slow with occasional increases in customer flow or fast paced with a high volume of customers. The co-workers were mostly reliable however if a coworker did not show up these responsibilities constantly got pushed onto myself or other workers. Picking up the slack of others was the hardest part of the job – more... and the most enjoyable part was having clear and concise leadership on tasks to be completed. – less

Beach Fun!
Cashier (Former Employee), Surfside Beach, SCApril 15, 2014
Pros: working with nice people at the beach
Cons: no heath insurance
I worked for the Pantry in the Myrtle Beach SC area for years. I loved every store I worked in. I especially loved the management and crew at the Surfside Beach SC location. Just like family. We sold everything that a vacationer or local would need such as groceries, gas, medical supplies, beer, lottery, and I always did grocery day because of my organizational – more... skills and readiness to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. My manager always asked me to train new employees because she knew I knew my job forward and backwards. My job offer with the SCDOT ended this position. – less

I really didn't find much hard about the job other some of the maintenance problems the – more... store were have didn't get resolved until late.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sumter, SCFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: discounts on the company to diffrent places.
Cons: having 3 breaks a day going back to work refreshed and more energized.
A typical day at work for me is going in early to get the pass on and I have learned how to communicate well with others and I have had great experience working in management as a Team leader and working with co-workers is a great experience but some of the co-workers can be a challenge but the hardest part of the job is miscommunication sometimes and – more... the enjoyable part of the job was taking care of others need and wants with a smile on my face and knowingly at the end of the day I can go home and rest good. – less

Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee), London, ENGFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: free food, great colleagues, tips for everyone
Cons: unreliability of next pay
this job was a really fun place to work, with the daily tasks needing to be done everyone shared the work equally, there was lots of laughter. the only downside was the unreliability of the pay where you didn't know when you would be getting your next wages. the best part of this job was the tips being split equally between everyone at the end of each – more... day. – less
