    Pros

    Easy Application, Quickly hired you after observation and fill the application, All of you will get hired no matter what if you have experience or not but important that you have a transportation to work from home. Flexible with schedule or you can arrive late but you must call advance one hour prior work start! Awesome!

    Cons

    Last minutes to informs you the schedule to start work, Manager will yelled at you daily, push you to rush & work hardest. Hell to work! Because you will have to pick up 0.01 lbs- 150lbs or more. Very strict with tardy and absent if you do. Possible to get termination or ask you resign.

    Advice to Management

    Manager is very friendly and work with you... They willing provide sign language for your accommodation!

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were pretty good for a part time job. My managers were pretty cool and respectful. There's room for advancement as well.

    Cons

    The facility that I worked at was constantly under-staffed. The turn over rate is really high. The work is really intense. Some employees get burnt out really quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so that your employees don't get overworked.

    Pros

    It's great to show up to work and simply work until the job is done. Small but hard working team. Not having to deal with customer service. Paid work out!

    Cons

    Definitely hard work. Must be aware of surroundings and body movement to help prevent injuries. Pay could be a little better so the labor involved.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay would result in happier employees.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Treat employees well. Attempts can be made to make it feel personal but it can be too much

    Cons

    Not too much room for growth without deciding to move out of the area. If you decide to switch opcos expect a pay decrease for more work.

    Advice to Management

    Open new opportunities for people within Pittsburgh. Offer opportunities whereas people can work from home if necessary. Trust employees
