    Pros

    Amazing coworkers. Fast paced environment, your work day can really fly. The work can be rewarding when you help someone truly in need.

    Cons

    Many customers are difficult to assist. Policy and time constraints make it impossible to thoroughly stop blatant fraud.

    Get rid of the supervisor nobody likes. A bad supervisor makes it impossible to retain your best talent. People leave great jobs because of bad bosses.

    The pay was really good, especially as a colege student.

    The upper management boss was a control freak and didn't know how to run the entire expo. My manager should have been running the place.
