Pros: Benefits & Comaraderie
Cons: Having to terminate employees
During my 15 year tenure, I was provided with training, both in class and on the job, in emploee relations, supervision, and management. Opinions and "outside-the-box thinking were encouraged.
I had very little supervision and was mostly on my own to develop my position, while following the rules and regulations of the company.
My co-workers were more like my family, which made my job much easier and enjoyable.
The least enjoyable part of my position was dismissing an employee due to job performance, attendance, or violation of policies.
