    Pros

    Lots of stuff to learn, good if you like working hard and good team environment

    Management is never organised so can be really stressful to organise anything with

    Advice to Management

    Take more care with the rosters and listen to people’s availability. A little bit of praise can go a long way to motivate someone to work harder each day, sometimes your goals get lost when it feels like no one cares about how you do your job
