Days often start hectic and end at a snails pace, the ability to leave your station to use the washroom or get a drink if necessary is a huge plus to working here. You can develop a closer relationship with staff and management than you may think you would be able to when working at an operation of this size.
Pros
Ice machine, friendly coworkers

Very archaic work environment. Little excitement or challenges. Very little structure in the office, rules are set in stone, no flexibility or work-life balance or support for self-development opportunities or educational pursuits.
Pros
stable work, not much to do

no movement, long hours without the workload, inflexible management

start time is a little too early if you're stocking and you live far from the location you're working at.
co-workers constantly complain.

not convinced workers are happy working there because of the pressure to maintain standard.

enjoyable part of the job is the pay.

management is decent because of two supervisors.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Maintain Standard, Unhappy workers, Higher ups dont care
