    Pros

    Scheduling, fast money, most people were great to get along with. You build relationships with your customers which also helps your pay

    Keep doing what you are doing! This was an amazing company to work for and the managers will help you and provide room for growth.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This was my first job so I didn't know how to negotiate. I guess if you asked they would be nice enough to negotiate.
