    Friendly co-workers. Regular Custumers are great to deal with.

    Start communicating with your employees!!!! If someone calls off, tell the department! And get more full time positions. You drive away workers by keeping them at part time

    Gain customer service experience, flexible hours, (mostly) friendly staff, raises every 6 months
