Pros: free drinks if we had our own cup.
Cons: no benefits, not enough hours or pay, lazy associates, negligant managers.
-A typical day at work was mostly standing at the register and tending to customers, but would also clean and maintain the front, back, inside, and outside of the store, including the cooler.
-I learned a lot about dealing with the general public, such as not letting your personal life effect your emotions at work when dealing with customers.
-Before I transferred to the Houston location, my previous co workers and I got along great, we communicated excellently, and helped each other always. After the transfer, a few of my new co workers were lazy more or less. I was used to always doing something even when there was nothing to do, and to see people standing around without a care in the world while I'm doing the majority of the work really frustrated me.
-The hardest part was dealing with a couple of assistant managers who continuously tried giving me orders as if I had just started, when I did more than them on a regular basis, and was always doing what was supposed to be done. All the while, my request for more hours or more pay was completely disregarded.
-The most enjoyable part about the job was before my transfer. I worked with people who had outstanding work ethic, such as myself. From the general manager to the newest employee. It's just a matter of location, every place does something differently than the next, and it'll either be a great experience or a bad one.
