Great Company, Understaffed

Production Line (Former Employee) Newport, RI

ProsHard working co-workers and flexible hours. Amazing cleanliness with a true commitment towards satisfying their customers. Thorough training process

ConsTerrible management who hated their jobs. Every shift i felt we were understaffed, with most times managers cutting employees shifts even if it meant placing a unfair work load on another employee. Overworked their employees for the wage a associate was paid.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
