    Pros

    Once you have seniority you get the better shifts available but when you first start out expect to work all the overnight and holiday shifts. I now work a receptionist position but it took me 2 years to get a descent schedule. If you can, avoid being a floater at all costs.

    Cons

    no real career opportunities; benefits aren't that great (if you're union they're ok, if you're non-union they're practically non-existant). Management does not seem to know what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees!

    Pros

    None. I'm surprised this company is still making such big profits when it's internal structures and policies are absolutely horrible.

    Cons

    Where to start. First there's low pay (typical complaint), the managers (which you have several of, not just one) micromanage like crazy and are always on your case 24/7. Priorities are way out of control. They expect you to do the work of 5 people without any help or proper communication. They are 100% a revolving door company - they hire and fire for no good reason, and they couldn't care less about doing it. The newcomers have to pick up the leftover slack, and soon enough get fired because they aren't performing "up to company standards" - whatever those are. Everyone there is miserable, and nobody likes their coworkers, meaning that not a single person is enjoyable to work with. If at all possible, stay away from this company and wait for a much better opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging so much. if you give someone a task, expect that they'll do it without asking them 20 times if it's complete. Set up clear and realistic goals for your employees, because then they'll know what's actually expected of them. Don't blame the newer employees for having poor communication when higher management doesn't give anyone the time of day for a conversation or some simple questions.
