"I really enjoyed the time I spent working here. The staff was very friendly and made it worth going to work every day, some more then others, just like most places. It can get really busy and they will ask a lot of you, but that's a good thing, because when it's slow, the store can be miserable."

"It's an academic institution, so the pay isn't all that great. Of course, I did find out later that some of my team members were paid a lot more than I was even though their level of responsibility wasn't much greater than mine was. I wasn't too happy with management, either."
