    Pros

    Nice people worked there and I really enjoyed my experience with everyone. The days were a bit long but the people were easy to work with, so I got along quite nicely.

    Cons

    The job was very mundane, boring, and not well-paying. I guess the only good part is that I really learned what a hard day of work is.
