    Flexible with my school schedule. I worked with people that were helpful. They recognized my hard work and rewarded me with more hours, though both scheduling and coverage.

    Pros

    Comfortable environment. Great people to work with. Boss is very understanding and wants you to succeed. Tries to get you all the training you need to be able to do your job and be happy with it.

    Cons

    Nothing to really say here. The only con was that it was a sales position and that requires a lot of cold calling and long hours but pushing through it with the correct team (these guys) was totally worth it and I learned a lot. (So still pretty much a positive here!)
