    Pros

    Coworkers and flexibility. There is room for advancement for very hard workers, who are willing to sacrifice their weekends, nights and holidays. The company profits are up and have been for a while and they are growing quickly.

    Cons

    ALWAYS looking to cut cost at employee expense. Everything is done to minimize cost without consideration for employees. Labor cost are monitored every hour and if business is down, you will get your hours cut. Most employees are worked under the amount of hours a week so you wont qualify for any vacation. There is no sick pay and very little benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When profits are so high, share it with the employees.
