    Flexible hours and good pay

    Pros

    Fun job, cute kids, great co-workers, flexible schedules, and a relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of management, rules, and schedule changes.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not move around mangers as much, it puts off employees when the rules and regulations always change.

    Fun and high energy environment

    No loyalty on behalf of the company, no development or on-boarding/training/coaching.

    Dont be so quick to let knowledge, experience and commitment go. Cultivate and work with people to grow your business rather than a sink or swim policy.
