    Pros

    Helping to make kids and parents happy is rewarding. The job is fast paced so the hours go by quickly. Most employees are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    As a seasonal employee I only received three hours of training, which, in my opinion, was not adequate. Both managers and costumers have very high standards and it is hard to meet those when you do not receive a proper amount of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training and patience with seasonal employees.
