    Pros

    meet diverse people. interact with many different people. help people that normally cannot do simple tasks without assistance is a very rewarding part of this job.

    Cons

    loud customers that think they are right when they are clearly mistaken are a big problem in this line of work. if you cannot let someone know that they are mistaken without being offensive or can let it roll off your shoulders. this is not the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    even though the job is not physically demanding, ase your new hires on their ability to be right or wrong and still have a smile on their face. and wish the customer a nice day even if said customer is being disrespectful.
