    Pros

    Very fast paced environment.
    Lots of challenges to meet.
    Great management team.

    Cons

    If you start out at the bottom, you've got to do a lot of work to make yourself known. With so many co-workers also wanting to move up the ladder you've got lots of competition.

    Pros

    The pay is good. You meet a lot of people. There is always something to do or learn. There are plenty of shift days/times. You will definitely get some type of workout.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to find parking. The break rooms are overcrowded at times. Having to go through metal detectors can be a hassle at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue making it a fun place to work at.
