    Pros

    Flexible enough for a college student, compensation is above minimum wage but below those with experience, almost always hiring, night and weekends off

    Cons

    Under par compensation for various positions, not much else to say about the cons, really. I'd still be working for the company if it paid more. Equipment was regularly down or malfunctioning.

    Pros

    nice people to work for, when you leave work you are tired if you are older, we have nice benefits. they are willing to work with you if there is a problem or a family emergency,

    Cons

    if you don't suck up to management, you don't get away with things, we don't get overtime usually training is one day and people who smoke, get more breaks than the ones that don't,

    Advice to Management

    the only thing i have to say is that the older generation are hard workers, they have alot of knowledge respect them and have the younger ones learn from them if they want to respect their jobs, working is hard and nobody said it is easy,
