I love working here because of my coworkers. We all work so well together. Everyone puts in there part, mos of the time. The only thing that could change is the management to be more understanding towards the part timers, which is what most young people are there. They don’t care as much for the part timers needs over the full timers. They could also work more with people who have another’s job besides that one. Other than those small negatives it’s all overall a great place to work at! If you’re a good employee it’s a stable and long lasting job.

I like the fact that the managers are very flexible with the schedules which is perfect because I am a college student. Most of their staff are college students! What I would like to see change in getting rid of favoritism, always giving the customer what they want even though it's technically not allowed, and getting rid of second chances.
