What I liked

Dealing with the customers, and working with my coworkers

What I wish was different

The management was better at listening to their employees, and that they took the proper steps to train their employees instead of putting people in places they are not trained to work in.

Advice

When managers ask you to do something outside your contract refuse, if they threaten firing you still stand your ground and do not cave. There will be a union or some other action you can take if they do fire you for refusing to do something outside of your contract.
