      Pros

      Honestly who else is going to let 20 year olds take on so much responsibility? I’ve learned, grown, and done so much I never thought was possible. The people working here are amazing!

      Cons

      The hours are crazy like 70-80 a week in the summer. We are constantly understaffed as a director team and it shows.

      Advice to Management

      We’ve been able accomplish so much this summer but could do even more with a few more hands. We’ve all had to step up in major ways to manage it all but I’m worried about the longevity of my team and our ability to keep doing great work as crazy hours are still the not .
