Pros: educational, nice customers
Cons: personal lives affected professional success
When I started this job it was fun and fast paced and the environment was great, and I was quickly given a great position on the team and trusted to train new hires. However there was an underlying issue with the manager that led to issues for the entire shop, and slowly led to people losing their jobs or quitting, making it hard on the rest of the team. The manager ended up being terminated by corporate shortly after I left on injury, and the new management seems to be successful.
A typical day included stocking, cleaning, and customer service. The hardest part was keeping the back room clean, and the best was helping friendly customers. This job taught me how your personal life can be affected by your job and vice versa.
