They will take advantage of you whenever they can
I worked here for 3 years and it was not a great experience. The supervisors were competitive and would bully management and staff. For a part-time minimum wage job their expectations were unreasonable. I'm not sure if this has changed since I was there but there were no brakes and it was not uncommon to work long stretches alone.

It is a decent part time job for students.
It’s a good job for students, managers are willing to work about other schedules. Would not recommend as a full-time job. There are absolutely no benefits for employees, only for management and hours are not guaranteed. I’m stuck trying to afford the cost of living on four 7 hour shifts a week making minimum wage. Upper management can be very toxic at times, and they expect a lot more from you than they should given then small amount they pay you. There are no raises unless you’re in management, and even then a raise is sparsely heard of.

Little short stop is an okay job
I worked for the company for 5 years. I was treated decently. It is a great job for when you’re a student because there is a variety of shifts, but hours are not always guaranteed. However it is not a job to look at for long term. There is absolutely not benefits unless you’re a manager. There are no raises, even though most employees are expected to do the work of the managers. You get paid minimum wage unless you become a manager, and even then you will never get your bonus, you get a minimal salary and no overtime even when you can put in 80+ hour weeks

Little regard to employee safety
Training is not consistent. Employees are trained 20 hours to be left to handle a busy store for 4 to 8 hours at a time. There are no breaks, no bathroom breaks (unless you're lucky enough for a lull in activity, where you'll have to lock two doors in order to go to the bathroom uninterrupted) There is no communication between management and regular employees. If there are fellow employees with bad work habits, you just have to deal with it, there will never be action taken to correct the issues.
