What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The best part about my job is the people I work with and the support that is available.
Everyone I work with is nice and extremely helpful. I can ask anyone for help on any work and they are always happy to help.
The worst part about my job is the balancing of work and college work. At the start, this was very difficult as it was a lot to do, but as your progress, this becomes a lot easier and you begin to develop yourself a system of how to do this best.
