Pros: customers are cool and nice. good work and life-balance. good for students.
Cons: short breaks, poor management, general sense of poor work ethic, huge turnover 40+ employees in one store, but 4 employees each shift
The job is pretty easy and sometimes I enjoy working there, but it can be pretty slow-paced. The customers are awesome, I love meeting the tourist and the holiday season, there is a lot of holiday spirit in the area. The coworkers are ok to work with, but they can be pretty immature and not willing to do all aspects of the job, making it difficult to – more... work during peck hours. To put it simple, Duane Reade seems to hire just about anyone and there is a huge turn over rate. I've come across some amazing co-worker in the past though, good thing that they moved on. The management is terrible as well, needs tons of improvement. – less
