    Pros

    After busy hours there is a little more freedom to move around and do your job. You make good friends.. I like my job. It does get busy and I believe it takes special people to work in the unit. I have made friends also great management in my opinion.

    Cons

    Tiring fast paced but once you have been their at least a month you get pretty use to it. I secretly love my job. I’ve had so far a fair experience with sodexo all together.

    Advice to Management

    My management is pretty cool and answers any questions. Sometimes they make Changes without you knowing though so pay attention and if you don’t understand something always speak up.
