  • Best thing

    It’s a fun job to work at only when you have the same shifts as your friends but overall it’s ok

    Worst thing

    SOME managers have no filter and they expect you to know every procedure and rule when you’re even a newbie and to get extra shifts or time off is a nightmare because nobody answers either the phone or their emails EVER.
