Pros

Pay. You are well compensated for your time while hourly, but once crossing the bridge to salaried... stocks. Variable compensation bonus (monthly or quarterly) . You will work hard, but its challenging/interesting work.

Cons

work. life. balance. Have a kid? be prepared not to see them. Same for a spouse. Once you are a level 4 (area manager and up) prepared to work from home answering emails almost constantly. Its a fine fit for someone young/single but beyond that, the hours 50-55 regularly, 70-80 during "peak" if not more.

Advice to Management

Balance the work loads better by hiring more staff. Standard work is a buzz word we throw about constatly, but its not practiced from building to building and shift to shift.

    Pros

    Good chance for an entry level job which pays well while it lasts.

    Cons

    Short term holiday employment. Well over 90% of the holiday temps will be let go after New Year's Day.
