      Pros

      The hours are convenient as I can actually plan activities out of work, great benefits, very in tune with the way our world is changing with a very diverse environment and great leadership.

      Cons

      There is lots of physical demands as cleanliness is a goal. Not everyone can deal with that but company does offer all necessary tools to make those responsibilities manageable.

      Pros

      The people are great. The managers are great!

      Cons

      You are never getting a raise. There are people that have been there 10-15 years and they make the same as me. I have been with them for a little over a year. I love my job, but I can hardly survive in Raleigh for 13 an hour. I know a couple of girls that work for us that are homeless. But its easy work and you are pretty much your own boss as long as you get your work done and take care of your property they dont mess with you much.
