Pros: holidays, break time, short hours
Cons: horrible boss, stressful and under-trained, no chances to advance.
Managers were unproductive, difficult to work with and had little to no training.
Salary put you well below the poverty line if working part-time but as a supplement to income was manageable.
Coworkers were fantastic and usually easy to get along with, very little office politics.
Worst part of the job was the customers, I had so many difficult situations – more... I was not prepared for thrown at me.
I quit this job because I was so over-worked and stressed out by my manager (who frequently loaded her work onto me) that I ended up having a stress seizure.
Most enjoyable part was that break were really great, you had enough time to catch up on homework and relax a little. I had, on the flip side, a great manager who worked part time in my store and part time in another and she was my saviour most of the time. She was smart and funny, very down to earth and made a world of difference to me. I stuck out the bad parts of my job because of her. When she left, it all went down hill. – less
