    Pros

    Good people Respectful Co- workers and bosses Understanding Family oriented

    Cons

    Sometimes some co workers had foul language but not in from of customers. It didnt pay much, but I much rather get paid minimum wage and be around good people like at salvation, instead of getting $15 a hour and being around disrespectful, immoral, foul people. Money isn't everything in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Open back up the Beaverton store on Beaverton Hillsdale and western.

    Pros

    My job as janitor entails so much more than cleaning. I get to set up for special events, boxing events, car shows, appreciation lunches. I am also a youth leader. I drive kids to camp, shop for our building supplies. I help sort food in our food pantry, register families for Christmas gifts and food boxes. I also chaperone kids on an annual shopping spree before school. I have been here for 5 years.

    Cons

    The only thing I can really complain about is my pay. I do not make enough money to make ends meet.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful of the person cleaning by not walking across the wet floor!
