Pros: great people and enviroment
Cons: not being able to advance in my career
I worked here for 13 years and all though many hate working with the public I loved it. A typical day at work was always providing speedy service and fresh coffee as I worked the A.M. shift. Once done helping out my fellow coworker, I would start on my paperwork and in between check on my crew and vendors. I would make a list of what needed to be done for the day and all of the crew, including myself would complete it. Every day there would be different tasks: cleaning, stocking, checking in vendors, banking, gas spills, training new hires, there was always something. We all worked as a team and communicated very well making things very easy on all of us. My coworkers were great! The key is to find what someone is great at doing but also finding their weakness and encouraging them to become stronger. The hardest part of the job for me was running out of challenges. I had been to 3 stores and had raised all of the sales in each one until I had the highest volume store. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing my customers and my crew. They were like family.
