They will work you to death! 40 hrs/wk is completely false, and their comp time is a complete joke. Their comp time structure basically has you working up to 4 event days (which are usually a minimum of 14 hour days) for one day off. You will not be paid overtime, and the boss constantly talks down to employees. Vacation time is hard to take, and don't even think about asking for an increase in benefits or salary.
