    Pros

    Job variety and responsibility levels are adequate and pay cycle is weekly; can usually work a flexible schedule; time off when necessary.

    Cons

    Non-competitive pay; poor benefits package unless you pay extra; no vacation accrual; no sick day accrual; no holiday pay unless you've worked a specific number of consecutive hours.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat the contract employees like cattle; make sure that questions are responded to in a timely manner; invest in self-improvement and advancement for contract employees.
