    Pros

    Very welcoming company/community and everyone is very close knit within their department. Most people have worked here for over 30 years and are always willing to help any new people. Good benefits and holiday pay. Huge emphasis on safety. Has numerous work opportunities. Flexible schedule. Overall, an excellent company to work for.

    Cons

    The commute can be boring and flow of traffic can change at different times of the day.
    People usually arrive at work between 5:30am and 7am, which can be early for people who are not morning people.
