    Pros

    Atmosphere of growth, Supportive Coworkers, Flexible Hours, Very Cooperative Supervisors, Decent Pay

    Cons

    Not many provisions for minimizing food waste, Few opportunities to advance, Training doesn't happen all at once (learn as you go mentality - even close to major holidays)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but try to keep the forward momentum! Making sure that the maximum amount of resources are diverted to the correct avenues is key for good word of mouth reputations; recycling, food and merchandise donations, and growth opportunities are what effect the staff's outward production.
