    Pros

    If you have no experience and no education you can get a decent salary and benefits (above minimum wage.

    Cons

    Very poor balance between work and quality of life. Require many hours (but pays overtime) and not much vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    More vacation time and regular 9-5 hours for non-managers.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Amazing overtime opportunities. Really nice people.

    Cons

    Promotions are rare. Very hard to transfer departments. Bonuses, raises and starting salary are low. Promotions and salary are based on how long you've been there for and not how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded. Promote hard workers and not people who've just been there for a while.

    Pros

    It's a stable job. Many people work here long term, so you get to see the same people and build relationships with them.

    Cons

    The culture of the company can be difficult to deal with. It's an unusual place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like school children.

    Pros

    TONS of vacation, great health benefits and store discounts. Most people I work with are nice and easy to work with. Cool hands-on experience with new gear.

    Cons

    LIttle opportunity to move up, frustrating superiors who are stuck in their old-school ways. Working on National Holidays that aren't Jewish (memorial day, labor day etc...)

    Advice to Management

    Give non-Hasids more opportunity to move up in company.

    Pros

    The people here are amazing - thoughtful, smart, kind, generous - no one has an ego. And business is booming!

    Cons

    The diversity of people is somewhat lacking - but honestly that doesn't matter because you're there to grow and learn professionally.

    Maybe update the office space. Lighting/paint...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.
