What I liked

Making memories and creating good rapport with the individuals

What I wish was different

I wish that I had done more than just sleep and watch movies on my days off

Make the most of it. Go in with a good attitude and try to make super fun memories. Your attitude is what determines the kind of day you're going to have at work. Don't take it too seriously.

Very flexible hours and sweet clients

What I wish was different

It’s sometimes short staffed and disorganized. Can be overwhelming at times.
