    Pros

    Good benefits if you get full time, set hours and breaks. Some upper management actually care about employees and are competent.

    Cons

    Quality of employees and management is depressing, everyone seems to hate working and comes to work to socialize. Company restructures often leaving employees to figure out new jobs and departments.

    Advice to Management

    Do not overlook the hard workers, if you see people socializing more than they are working do something about it. Part-timers are suffering through lack of hours, most are hard workers yet it's the full-timers doing nothing and reaping the benefits of 30+ hour work weeks.


  2. Work was okay, so was the pay, management needed work though.

    Pros

    Pay and the work being done was good.

    Cons

    Management needs reworked as they had no idea how to handle people and only cared about sales.

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul of management, retraining possibly.
