What I liked

The best thing about this job is the people. I made a great deal of life-long friends and even more priceless memories. I met my girlfriend of three years here. Second to the relationships, for someone who is looking to avoid student loans, this job gives you the opportunity to prevent mortgaging your future. This job pays well. Lastly, working at Brothers gives you a work ethic that you will carry for the rest of your life. If you can work on the weekend like you do during the week, this job will galvanize your discipline and determination.

What I wish was different

I wish I hadn't left this job. After a year or so I quit and got another job downtown. I quickly found nowhere has the same camaraderie, potential for growth, and opportunity to make money. Ultimately I returned. The only thing I wish was different is that I hadn't left in the first place.


Know what you are getting into. The hours are long, but manageable. The work is stressful, but it doesn't have to get to you. You must earn managements respect, but they will treat you like family. As in life, this job will give you exactly what you give. For me, this place will always have a special place in my heart.
