    Pros

    Great employees and coworkers, kind and understanding, Christ-based, only work during the week and no weekends. The kids are amazing and you stay busy and on your feet.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low and you can't take extra hours if you want to make more money. Also, if your schedule changes and you can no longer work after school, you're out of a job.
