    Pros

    Benefits are great. That's it

    Cons

    Constantly work mandatory overtime. No home life. Way too much favoritism in my department. If you make a suggestion for improvement you never hear anything about it. Lead controls supervisor. Can do no wrong. Employees can do nothing right unless you are in the click. Tired of being treated like a child and abused, while the favorites can do anything they want. Don't ever make a mistake. You get a report card at the end of the month with your mistakes

    Advice to Management

    Time for a change in supervisors. Get rid of them like they get rid of us. I would love to give my supervisor a review. Definitely would fire them. We need management that cares

    Pros

    Other than steady work- I can't think of any. This company is out for profit only and they do not care about employees AT ALL! They use people and when they are done with you they are done. As a temp- they will keep you 18 months and then you are out!

    Cons

    They use terror tactics with their employees. Everyone lives in constant fear of losing their job. If you are 1 minute late- no matter the circumstance- you are fired and walked off the premises. If you have an opinion or suggestion- you better keep it to yourself because you will be written up and soon after fired.

    Advice to Management

    One of my fellow employees who worked there for 25 years- her husband died- 2 months later without notice she was fired because she had made a few minor mistakes. Another woman who was a lead and worked there over 20 years was fired when she got cancer.
