    Nice facilities, good pay, I wish I had more to say.

    Cons

    where do I even begin? management sucks--they utilize scare tactic a lot, no training, no encouragement, back stabbing, no growth, nepotism and favoritism, unprofessional, a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who are trying to benefit this company, fire the managers who do not allow this company to thrive.

    Pros

    Good Pay & awesome benefits

    Cons

    Inconsistent rules, management playing favorites to poor workers, even the union that is supposed to help you won't left a finger to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent with the rules. If you fire an employee for one thing and that same employee receives word that the person that sucks up to you is doing the same exact thing then there is a major flaw in your system
