Opportunity for career advancement is great. It's otherwise lacking.

I have learned how to be more tolerant of difficult work conditions and how to act in the work place.
Management for the most part does genuinely care about the well being of the student employees. Communication seems to be their biggest flaw. Their approach to handling the students is sloppy and/or ham fisted at best.
Many of the student/employees at center are emotionally directed and don't appreciate the opportunity that is being given to them. They tend to be loud and disrespectful to the staff and to each other.
The hardest part is definitely having to work with my fellow student employees. Getting up ever morning and going to work early just to have others upset the instructors and causing the whole group to suffer the consequences. Then ending the day just to go dorm and deal with them there too; doing to same thing with the same outcome, day in and day out.
Being able to have the peace of mind that every morning I wake up that I will improve myself a little bit every day.
Free food, room and board with the opportunity to learn a trade or two.
Because of the age range many of the coworkers can be immature.
