    Pros

    Promoted immediately when you upgrade license Decent pay Learn by doing work without technicians

    Cons

    Very unreliable work schedule, hard to get a relief Cost control is felt by crew

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay so you will have more officers looking to join the company rather than looking to leave. Human resources needs to up their game.
