    Pros

    Fast advancement, good hours, good pay. I enjoyed the people I worked with. Fun, friendly atmosphere. I had fun at work most days

    Cons

    Always changing policies, hard to keep up with all the changes sometimes. There isn't usually enough staffing and cross training for the CPD

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They're the ones working on the front lines every day and they just may know another way to do things that will make business run more smoothly.
