      Honest Review

      Pros

      If you get a good Site to be posted at it will make or break your job. The Site you work at is your client and negotiated your contract, which determines your pay, benefits, vacation, etc. So having a good Site can be the difference for this job.

      Cons

      Having a bad Site can make this job horrible. You risk low pay, bad benefits, no vacation. No overtime is allowed generally as it takes money from the company rather than the site. EX The site pays for you to be there 40 hours a week, anything over 40 comes from the company's pocket. In my experience you will need to reduce any possible OT hours by coming in later or leaving early.
