    Pros

    I received a promotion after three years. Did not interview for the position was asked to step into position that was vacant for four months. Was given a lot of support to be successful in the new role

    Cons

    Vacation time for new employees is only three weeks and you can only carry over 40 hours from the previous calendar year. You do not receive four weeks until you are there for a total of five years.

    I enjoyed my job. There is a lot of opportunity to run the business your way. If you have the right leader there is a lot of opportunity.
