    Pros

    They pay temporary workers well if the temporary worker is not contracted through an agency.

    Cons

    They will end your contract the day of in some circumstances. I was lucky enough to be given a month's notice.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring people who do not have master's or Ph.Ds for permanent positions. Most of you don't seem to consider life experience. It's valuable.
