    Pros

    Stay up to date with technology. Employee discounts.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Purposely give you just under full time hours so they don't have to provide benefits. Unethical selling of services to customers expected.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees enough to pay them a living wage. Stop making employees force services and credit cards down every customers throat.
