    Pros

    You get paid cash everyday you do work. They are flexible with hours. Always a welcoming environment, they never want you to fail.

    Days are slow, don't expect everyday to have the same outcome. Hours are hard to come by especially when your the new one. Favoritism sometimes gets in the way

    Give everyone a chance to prove their assets.
