"Break out."
Pros: Before this job I was shy and quiet but having to constantly interact with customers, weather over the phone or in person it has gotten me to be more outgoing and open.
Cons: I work10 feet from the stadium surrounded by three different schools so dealing with drunk college kids is a constant;and they tend to be more rude than the average customer. I also work 50 plus hours a week so I never get to see my family.
