    Pros

    Great Company. Great for college students. Even though it says part time if you need full time hours it is not hard to get atleast 32hrs a week in. You can get promoted pretty quickly(since the turnover is so high ) as long as you show up every day and do what your suppose to do you can get promoted in less then a year. If you need help with something everybody is willing to help as long as you ask

    Cons

    If you work the preload shift the hours are the hardest thing to get use to Tues-Sat 1am-8am. It took me about a month to get use too. Physically you are sore no matter how much you work out. It took about 2 weeks to get used to the physical part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers do this and some don't. But try to get to know your employees. Its not hard to ask how someone day is. Its not hard to tell if someone is having family problems or other problems outside of work and if you notice that just ask how they are doing without getting too personal. You would be surprised how much of a difference that would make them feel. Also if a employee is messing up tell them when they do it don't wait a month also don't yell and make them feel like they are a inch tall we are all adults so there is no need in that.

    Pros

    The salary and package are great. Work life balance, peaceful environment, nice people working around here. It is just like a huge and warm family

    Cons

    Management changed too frequently in the recent years which made employees a little bit hard to follow and get used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle Management should align more on the corporation direction and confirm what the Senior Management is really looking for before starting their work.

    Pros

    Always busy which I like. Promote inside the company. Night shift isn't as bad as everyone makes it seem.

    Cons

    When it gets backed up the 12 hour days come in. Weather weather and weather again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to have more focus meetings lots of times stuff isn't looked at that should be.
