    Pros

    Not a minimum wage job and comes with comes with health, dental and 401k after few months of employment. People are pretty chill and supervisors are friendly,

    Cons

    Not a minimum wage job, but pretty low for beginners compared to other companies in he industry and rarely any raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to know your employees and give them what they really want. A lot of people working at your company is having to decide weather to spent on gas or food every month. A raise a year to keep up with the economy will be really helpful.
