      It’s a great job to work at, everybody treats you like family there. The co-workers are very nice and friendly, you’ll make friends quick. It’s also a fun job you get to see kids and family’s smiling and laughing all day, it’s great!

      Cons

      Sometimes a lack of communication between you and the manager but not all of the time
