Unresponsive, Inconsiderate, and Unhelpful

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Reno, NV

ProsThe facility is well kept and the location is good (an industrial area away from the downtown area). The facility is highly secured.

ConsThe hiring website has many flaws that make it very difficult to use. There are websites and email addresses that are not functional. Human Resources is unhelpful and inconsiderate to prospective employees. Unresponsive to emails and phone calls.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
