      You will get tired quickly. This job can put you in uncomfortable situations daily. The wear and tear on your car really isn’t worth it.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits and emphasis on mental health care, work from home is a plus, awesome culture and coworkers, many managers I've had are really kind and care about me personally

      Cons

      Lack of opportunity for upward movement, constant added responsibility each year with low reward, pay increases are low compared to inflation and cost of living, schedules change every 6 months based on performance so it's impossible to plan ahead, have a second job, or be in school without accepting you may have to quit at some point due to getting a schedule that doesn't fit. No flexibility with schedules at all compared to other "cooperate" jobs
