    Definitely a sense of working on something "bigger than me". And amazing people!!

    Honest review

    Pros

    You get to work in some historic places like the Tabernacle and Temple Square.

    Cons

    Erratic schedule, you never know what days you are working from month-to-month. Frequently work 10 days in a row, but no overtime for it. Pay is low and the amount you are offered is pretty much what you will make for the rest of your career. Constant 3% raises EOY do not keep up with inflation.
