    I worked at Almost Family

    Pros

    This is as close as it gets to employers knocking on your door. If a job ad is being distributed by e-mail, the employer is reaching out. These could be sent to, and come to you through, Career Services, your academic department, advisors, clubs, you name it.

    Cons

    None, really. It's just a form of information and communication coming to you. Even if a particular job/career fields is not of interest, use it to learn about what is out there.

    Not alot of hours , a little of favoritism to older employees at times. Sometimes good employees get pushed out by not so good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The benefits need to be tweeked, need PTO and better insurance for their employees.
