Suggestions for improvement

  • Recycling would be a huge change. Most restaurants have at least a bin for boxes to be recycled.

What I like about the company

Being older I have been allowed to have an extremely flexible schedule. I have also been singled out to train and supervise even though I dont care to work full time.

What I dislike about the company

I think the healthcare should be offered to both long term full and part time employees. Recycling would be good, especially with the amount of boxes trashed.
