This is a very comfortable and friendly place to work. Management is very thoughtful and understanding when it comes to scheduling. Hard work is always acknowledged and commonly rewarded.

The first week I got back to back 9 hour shifts because another worker just didnt want to work. Not so great on the back and didnt get training in the front so I had no idea what I was doing.
Pros
None.
Cons
To much gossips. And favoritism.

Decent job, staff and managers were nice, you get a hour long lunch, good place for a student to work, the hours were usually pretty good, sometimes you have to work more than 5 days in a row.

Actually working at askew's was good, the other coworkers and working with the public.
Management made it very difficult and gave the feeling of not wanting to be there more often than not unfortunately.

this was my first official job and honestly I would have stayed and been just as happy. the management really seemed to care about their staff. I always felt supported to excel and safe from rude or threatening customers. the only down side was that it was hard to advance. you basically started and stayed in the same job.
