Started off great, but then when you become really good at what you do, they take advantage of you for their benefits.

    Pros

    It was a great experience! You have a lot of repeat customers, so building relationships is pretty simple. I found personal enjoyment in the relationships I built with both coworkers and customers. The products were easy to make, and most of the time the pace was faster than it was slow, so the day went by pretty quickly. You really get a chance to share opinions or issues at seasonal meetings, which the managers never ignored. It was a fun, relaxed atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be a bit unprofessional towards employees. Also, if you don't like jazz music, it's playing constantly (though lowly), as a forewarning (though I had no problem with it myself).

    Advice to Management

    Showing favoritism really insults the rest of the employees.


  2. Managers never around No hours

    Pros

    When it was just the regular employees, things were fun. Training is fun.

    Cons

    Managers are always in the back on the computer, which makes it hard when you are new. The only two cool managers got transferred. The ones that were left liked to make you feel like crap. almost NO hours.

    Advice to Management

    get off the computer and actually do some work
