    Pros

    In this climate I have a job, if you are into sports or forcing animals to race then you are golden

    Cons

    getting yelled at by customers thinking you're stealing all their money, very long hours sometimes 12h+ with little official breaks. If Management don't like you, they will just pin stuff on you to get rid of you.
