    Pros

    Easy work hours and requirements with low demands. If you have a good supervisor its possible to move around and have a good experience.

    Cons

    Under-qualified management and co-workers that only care about finding ways to miss work and file for bogus overtime pay. Massive cuts due to upcoming election and no direction for this division. Hopefully the upcoming changes in division culture and direction with a new election will fix things.

    Advice to Management

    Audit your supervisors for filing for fake overtime and skipping out on hours. Minimal leadership skills and mainly under-qualified for doing anything, its amazing who gets put into these positions (boys club). Morale is at an epic low, please let go of the boat anchors dragging it down
