    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -Nice staff
    -Easy job to balance with school work
    -They let you listen to music while working

    Cons

    -Very boring and repetitive job
    -Workers are so shy that it is difficult to feel at home at first
    -When things got slow and there was no work to do they do not let you leave early

    Advice to Management

    When there is little or no work to do let the student go home so that they can study. It is a waste of both TCU resources to pay them to sit there when the student would most likely like to be home studying.
