    I have been working at GCA Services

    Pros

    I enjoy working with children and the entire school environment. I love supervising my staff in the maintenance of the school.

    Cons

    I wish the distribution of the tasks I have would be better executed between the other maintenance workers at the school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should treat their employees with more respect and should encourage their employees to work hard. Management should also be more organized and should allow for better career opportunities.
