    Pros

    Having worked here for the past five summers, and being promoted 3 times, I can say that there are great opportunities to advance into management roles and gain experience in management.

    Cons

    Even in management it is not a 9 to 5 job so the hours can be a little hard but that is to be expected due to the nature of the job.

    Cons

    Although the atmosphere was great the pay was not nearly close enough to being at a living wage. Also tough to get weekends off.
