      Pros

      Learning about the product is great you can take it with you anywhere. Small team, colleague discount and incentives

      Cons

      Manager is very rude, even to customers who also say the same. Not for everyone, shifts are not a full day..they will tell you to come in for few hours each day which is not ideal. Manager will look through the cameras at the back to keep an eye on you. No trust and alot of attitude. They don't follow all the rules as they should. Going through difficult times extra stress would be added and manager wouldn't have any empathy towards your mental health
