    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time here. The supervisors were easy to get along with. They are very forgiving with break policies. If you work hard, you can work your way into management.

    Cons

    Very low starting salary. I expected to make more money starting out, so it' hard to survive in today's economy.

    Advice to Management

    Start employees at a higher pay rate.
