    Better work comes from more staff. Impossible to complete tasks to standard is difficult when there is no hours for staff.

    Some of the more advanced bits of training were set aside, leading to a few instances of delayed assistance for customers

    Generally, a more thorough training session would be appreciated, though otherwise the working environment seems quite healthy
