Can be a fun environment, just watch whom you befriend.

Upper management has no regards for their managers' Personal situations. If you are not a perfect citizen with all things taken care of, they treat you like a black sheep of the "friendlys family team" . beyond that the assistant managers(for the most part) were great and helpful along with the many of the crew members that i have worked with. All in all its a good place to work, if you like to hustle, its your place.

Completely awful

Management was the worst part of this job. They will talk down on you and beat down on your spirit. Other coworkers were very nice, however. I loved working with the customers and assisting them. It was just the management that drove me insane.

Pros

Customers

Cons

Management, nonflexible hours, awful pay

Pros

Coworkers

Micromanage for the the top with no clear direction

The brand has no clear direction the people making the plan are winging it at best. Countless hours on conference calls during hours of operation for feedback that never was used

I didn’t enjoy working there.

That place was just too unorganized and all over the place. And the management was hard to work with. I enjoyed working with the other members of the team but I couldn’t do it any more especially at that pay rate.

Pros

It’s close to the highway.

Cons

Bad management

I would pass on this

The crew is awesome but the management is not the greatest. They cut hours alot so it's hard to have sustainability at this location. At most just part time here.
