    Pros

    Friendly co workers Casual work environment

    Cons

    Around 25% of new hires are fired after the initial training phase... It is certainly a position that is not for everybody. Even if you put fourth your best efforts, you may not be detail oriented enough to remember the all the intricacies (which follow no general principles) that you are expected to somehow master. Antiquated technology Stressful Salary is low Extreme expense management (bring your own cups, never any food provided by company) 30 minute lunch break limit (basically means you have to bring your own food because there is no time to pick it up)

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the training program and provide more support for new hires.
