    Pros

    The company had great benefits next to what I had in retail for 20 years. Pay was excellent. Once you factored in your overtime that made it even better.

    Cons

    Spent the last year before our shop closed working seven days a week. During that time management was a bit hard to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think things out better before you proceed.
