Pros: pot lucks, bbqs, christmas party, always something to do, special events - ex, jeans friday, hat day, or costumes for halloween
Cons: short staffed, hard to get things done when it's busy, lack of proper training
As a part-timer, evening and weekends are generally busy with lots of things to do and lots of options and ways to go about them. Working here is very team-oriented. There's always somebody in the store to go to for questions. I've learned how to better work with people in different context versus my previous jobs, I've also learned how to better prioritize. – more... Often you have to compromise priorities with time-management in order to get everything done.
The management team is excellent. Each of them knows their end of things very well and know what needs to be done. The management schedule is usually organized in a way that, I find, compliments each of them and allows for better productivity, despite our lack of staff.
Co-workers are usually enjoyable to be around and most of them know to leave their outside issues out of work and to be professional even when something happens at work they aren't happy with.
The hardest part of my job is getting everything done in the amount of time I'm given. There is currently many department managers missing from our team. I have lots of extra duties and capabilities outside of my actual job description. This makes it hard to get my job done, but when people have a vast knowledge of how to do things- in ANY job- your employer and management will like you more. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I know my job well and I'm recognized for what I do. I'm treated with respect. Many of the people I talk to regularly here are easygoing and friendly for the most part. – less
