    Pros

    Monday thru Friday hours with weekends off excellent hours and employer was ethical and fair. Good employer to work for. I never had a problem with getting my lunch breaks and any issues I had were handled with respect and resolved to my satisfaction.

    Cons

    Nothing worth mentioning, employer was easy going and just expected a good work ethic so clients get the best service

    Thank you for allowing me to rate the company
