Brand ambassador (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – October 21, 2013
Pros: no pro's
Cons: saying hi to people and they don't say hi back.
It was tiring and i'm starting to dislike it. I believe there's something more out there for me besides standing in a hairnet all day. I have more skills for something more. My co-workers were always taking off for walks, and doing whatever. I feel there's not enough discipline in my life.
