    Pros

    It allowed me to do something I love while working with a great staff. The free-employee membership was an added perk.

    Cons

    not the best pay, at least to start; sometimes customers can be snippy and demanding, but just jeff it off because it's usually not your fault

    Advice to Management

    Get things fixed timely and "for good"; reconsider the facility improvement fee (amount)...
