    Lots of opportunities to move up, not a lot of competent management.

    Pros

    Working hard allows quick opportunities for advancement. If you're looking for a solid job with a company that has been around a long time, it's not a bad choice.

    Cons

    Not managed well and has too much drama between colleagues and locations. Very high school type atmosphere sometimes. Do not put customers first very often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you know which employees are helping the company and which are hurtig it. Way too many people in decision-making roles who have no business making decisions.

    Great pay, Plenty of hours if you want them and Plenty of growth opportunity. Awesome company culture.

    Cons

    If you are in school it is not a good place to work because the hours are long. Work and life balance is horrible because work is life.

    Pros

    My co-workers. They are all entertaining and great people

    67 hours a week.
    Getting yelled at by about 30 people a day for something that isn't your fault.

    Branch Management is great... something isn't working with the CEO and the big wigs in the company.
