      Pros

      Met some great people. The odd bargain

      Cons

      Low pay from what colleagues are expected to do, for example, follow suspicious looking customer while the company totally disregards your safety. No pay scale, the only pay increase is those imposed by the state. Managements blatant lack of empathy or understanding for any issues in your personal life
