Just another "good ol' boys' club"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsName recognition
Ability to set up shop nationwide
Decent training and access to materials
Vacation bonus incentives
OT pay available while training

ConsWorkplace ignorance/insensitivity is highly prevalent
Immaturity of new hires is obvious - some of the employees are plucked right out of high school without even attending or finishing college
Diversity is non-existent: if you are a woman, immigrant, or ethnic minority, prepare to stand out like a sore thumb
Very "small town" "mid-Western" feel, not recommended for worldly job-seekers used to living in a city or those who have worked globally
Very poor medical coverage/benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue when it comes to workplace sensitivity and making sure you squash inappropriate comments, behavior, and attitudes before they get out of hand. This training program was a wannabe-frat house complete with over-sexed booze hounds ruining it for the rest of us.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
