    Pros

    The co workers I had were great fun! Overall atmosphere was pretty pleasant. The customers weren't the worst of them all

    The pay was just way too small. Not worth the responsibility. People gossip like we're back in high school and it becomes annoying after a while

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work I guess...
