      Pros

      - Managers and Coworkers are all very nice - Training for first couple of weeks, easy job to learn - Trusted to work alone and manage your own tasks, as long as you don't make mistakes - not too much pressure as long as you aren't completely slacking off - emphasis on safety

      Cons

      - Not air controlled (gets really hot and really cold) - Hours will increase during busy season, will have you work up to 60 hours a week - on your feet all day long, you need good shoes and even then will feel it in your legs - tedious and boring job
