    Pros

    Working for corporate accounts allows me to go to school in the evenings.

    Cons

    You need to be on your game at all times to give great customer service!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much busy work for the laborer such as paperwork, the paperwork becomes arbitrary after awhile no one really checks it... that's why you have management they're getting "paid" to do the busy work the laborer produces, and management overseas production!

    Pros

    The managers were helpful and professional. The whole management team was interested in its staff and willing to teach and help. The hospitality industry

    Cons

    Scheduling for hourly work was sporadic and the other hourly employees were not very motivated or helpful. This was very much a job where you made what you put into it.
