  • Best thing

    Good hours and respectful management, I’m allowed to get on with my work without being micro managed and take my breaks when I want, management treats me well and therefore I work hard. When I finish I don’t think about work til my next shift starts.

    Worst thing

    Sometimes the building can be too warm as I’m rushing around. Sometimes the stationary I need isn’t available.
