    Pros

    Promoting within the company would be the biggest thing that stood out to me with this company. Here, your experience pays off.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind. You will have to become a part of the team and see for yourself. This is a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    The experience really differs based on the site you're stationed at, but in the two sites I've been stationed at - one was much more stressful than the other - I've still very much enjoyed the job. Despite there being a need for observational skill and quick-thinking problem solving, there is also down time that allows you to focus on school work or reading.

    Cons

    Promotions can be hard to come by if you don't present yourself as hard working and intelligent, even when you have the down time.

    Pros

    Very nice and supportive people, willing to train you on the job and expect you to always keep improving. Base pay is good and opportunities for advancement are always there.

    Cons

    Hours can be difficult, but that's to be expected in a 24/7 business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep attracting talented people and giving them the opportunity to grow.
