    Pros

    Good colleagues to work beside.
    Pretty easy, straight-forward job.

    Cons

    Management are a shambles, mostly consists of people who enjoy a power trip and will try and dress you down whenever you're vocal about concerns.

    No matter when your shift actually finishes, you probably won't leave until about half an hour later - which they won't pay you for.

    High turnover of employees as most people are driven away by poor management and unrealistic timescales to complete tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and recognise the business isn't your personal sandbox to have a power trip in.
