    Pros

    They'll hire just about anyone, regardless of what company they come from or if they have a criminal history. You can always expect to meet new people every month because the turnover is pretty high.

    Cons

    Ethically questionable behaviors by management and unfair treatment of low ranking employees, along with inconsistency in policies and procedures make it difficult if not impossible to work and be productive at this company. Additionally, backstabbing and gossiping are rampant. All in all, a text book example of how an organization should not operate in terms of treating employees. Pay rate is below, way below, industry's standard. Appropriate training is not provided to new employees. There is no such a thing as coaching and mentoring. No one cares about career development plans for staff. Mid level managers are incompetent and treat their staff in such a horrible condescending manner. However, from day one they constantly mention to new hires "how lucky" they must feel and "how grateful" they should be for having been hired by the company. Favoritism by managers is so obvious and sickening. If you dare to report any of mistreatment or misconduct of your manager to HR you will have to look for another job right away. Employees are not appreciated and or acknowledged for their hard work and loyalty. There are several class action law suits against the company. They offered $250 check to those who decided not to join the class action. If you want to be miserable day in and day out and be humiliated for any questions you ask then this is the right place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop encouraging bad behavior and lead by example. If you're going to tell people to "suck it up" and learn to live frugally, you probably shouldn't roll to work every day in a high-end Mercedes.
