    Pros

    super flexible with hours, if you want hours you’ll get them, if you want less hours they’ll work with you, perfect when you’re in school. I had a lot of time inbetween classes and the chance to actually get work done.

    Cons

    I was on call a lot, it would be my day off and i’d be asked if I could work. The work culture would sometimes negatively effect my money, a specific manager on shift can make or break if you leave with $120 or $60.
