Pros: I can get away from being late I just have to make my hours, at times my boss travels so I am alone in the office which I like it sometimes.
Cons: Low pay. Overwhelming. Dealing with many different personality. Juggling many task at once and expected to accomplish with ease. Tons of paper to file. Sitting in from of a computer for hours at times forgetting to go to lunch. Boss always criticizing my eating life style (vegan) Boss saying things he has no business saying. Every one who I work with are getting a good salary but I am the only one making below 12 an hour and does a lot of work. I don't even get paid if I stay late behind. I go home and the job follows me emails and always going off. If I am sick I still have to work from home. If I take a personal day I still have to work from where ever I am. There is no separation from personal to business.
