    Pros

    Pay is good. It can be fun to work at times.

    Cons

    Work long hours. May not get two days off a week. Management works hourly positions. Your opinion does not mean anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to managers. Some D.O.'s don't care what you have to say or value your opinion.
