    I have been working at Fort Lee MWR full-time

    Pros

    Hours are extremely flexible. Coworkers are friendly. A variety of different tasks are available to perform so the job doesn't seem repetitive. Assisting active duty military enjoy their down time is a rewarding experience.

    Cons

    Supervision does not focus on the product. It is a job in a military environment and dealing with the bureaucracy can be so frustrating. Pay is low, just above minimum wage. No benefits are given at the entry level. The number of hours per week is also not guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the managers responsible for their jobs.
