      Pros

      Nice managers who offer support and are flexible around exams and coursework etc. free meal every shift plus 50% off any food you order on top of that. Our managers would always let us order for for half off before the end of our shift to take home which was useful as a student.

      Cons

      the customers but that can't be helped
