    Pros

    - Good team work - Easy to get promoted if you express interest in the job and doing it well. - Full time availability during the summer

    Cons

    - Pay doesn't really increase much even after promotions - Students with financial aid are preferred over students not on financial aid.

    Advice to Management

    Implement stricter regulation of absences, late-arrivals, etc. Be less resistant to letting people go if their performance is constantly under-par.
