    I worked at Oakley part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. I was a student at OU and love the environment. This was one of my first jobs and Jeff Thomas' patient, kind, professional, nurturing attitude made the experience worthwhile, fun, interesting and pleasant! I also worked with some wonderful co-workers who took me under their wing and showed me the ropes. I'll never forget any of them! :)

    Cons

    There were absolutely very few to no cons. Any con I can think of is too petty to report. But I can assure you there were just about none! Jeff and my co-workers were all a Boss and a Staff should be! God Bless them all! :)

    Advice to Management

    Jeff, if you're still at OU, please stay exactly as you are. You are a major blessing in your industry and so many new students/employees can learn so many valuable life lessons under your training. :)
