    Pros

    Great way to start learning about jobs and being responsible. Being on time, doing your part and trusting your co-workers is exactly what I learned here

    Cons

    Promotions are not often and mostly who is the favorite among the workers. Sometimes favoritism can really put a damper on your continued positivity and overall dedication to the work place.
