      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at The MENTOR Network full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      I have been working here for 3 years already and I like the support they provide. They adjust the schedule base on your classes and you have the possibility the get your assignment done at work. Which provides more time to study and do your best at work. Staff are caring, helpful and fun to be around.

      Cons

      the down side is only the clients sometimes they get aggressive but you get trained to overcome the stress and to handle the situation.
