    Advice to Management

    Better training . Was only trained for 4 days before be thrown to the wolves to fend for myself

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance, tuition reimbursement, team culture, friendly staff and management, great pay, every other weekend off and a weekday

    Cons

    Heavy workload with minimal team members, there are times you have to leave your work center to be LOD. Own a large area with only few team leaders under you
