Pros

You get to meet some very nice people and maybe even hear a story from a customer.

    Pros

    - OK working environment
    - nice employees for the most part

    Cons

    - Pay: Raises and promotion seems based on who sucks up to managers the most and not based on how hard one works
    - Shady managers: I have known multiple managers who were busted for stealing money from employees and the business
