    Pros

    The people are really friendly and funny, always there if you needed help with a client call to simply buying you lunch.

    Cons

    Not having enough hours was a small problem and if I was having car trouble it was pretty hard to catch the bus, but I always got to work

    Pros

    They gave me a paycheck for working there.
    When your shift is done, it's done

    Cons

    Leadership was lacking in management experience.
    Nobody received raises.
    Always unorganized.
    It always felt like work was unstable. Like you could one day show up, and they would say that they lost the account.
