    Understanding managers
    Flexible hours
    Paid training

    Cons

    Not enough Hours and no set schedule anywhere in the Phoenix areas.
    Hiring anyone and anybody to take a position is great but leads to some bad people on the job.
    Training is paid but trying to finish or take it up at a flexible time is a problem if you don't have the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training your people better, and the company will shine, also pay us what were worth.
