"They do not pay well for the work we do. Although it is higher than the average hourly wage, I still have not received a raise after being there longer than a year and after asking my manager about it. They do a review and if your sales and performance are up to par, you may get a small percentage of a raise. They also cut back hours when it is not busy."
