    Pros

    Employers care about their employees. The employees actually care about customers. Positive environment. Flexible schedule.

    Pay rate is low starting out, and it's hard to get locked into full time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor what your longstanding employees are doing. They seem to start slacking once they've been there a while.
