"Tedious but full of opportunities to learn."
Pros: Having the freedom to run a minor department the way I feel both my partner and myself can work out stock in a timely manner.
Cons: Having to put in more effort and energy, risking my physical health while someone is at a higher position into management is laid back and does less work for higher pay. Having to put up with being talked down behind my back to managers to make themselves look better. This causes a lot of stress on me as well as gives me less time to do other things like re tagging the shelves, looking for out of dates, learning more of our system.
