    Pros

    The pros of my job were that I was able to find employment while also being a full time student.

    Cons

    A con was that my work hours did take a way from the hours that I needed to study and practice my skills in my art program.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to be a little less rigid in the hiring process because many capable students were denied employment.

    Pros

    Great place to work. It is fast paced and high pressure. You must be adaptable to change. The people are professional and nice for the most part. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Long hours. Located in the strip district. Parking stinks. Fast paced and high pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower level employees more. We are in the trenches and are in touch with what is really going on.

    Pros

    Other employees are hard working and fun to work with. Lower management works well together.

    Cons

    Things are always changing with little or no notice along with little help. Plans are created but rarely implemented.

    Advice to Management

    The ground floor employees work extremely hard and deserve more respect.
