This was ok as a temporary job or could be better as someone's second job. Fast paced and heavy traffic.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI liked that I belonged to a union, that is always nice. And also I enjoyed the steady raises and teamwork.

ConsUnderstaffing would be difficult to work under especially when we were busy. And seniority ranking by time instead of productivity

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to new ideas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
