    This will give you ALOT of overtime.

    QA Technician (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are nice (My boss and co-workers are awesome!)
    Work for the most part is very easy.

    ConsWorking 7 days a week (Every other weekend we get off)
    Pay is not great
    Your working 9-10 hours a day.
    your breaks a really short
    you always standing ( on concrete, so your legs WILL HURT!)
    Rules are EXTREAMLY strict
    The recruiter\traning people will tell you highly inaccurate information so you will take the job
    ( and they do it because they take money from your paycheck for recuting you until you are no longer a contractor)

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive longer breaks, and maybe invest in some more chairs, and people so we dont have to work over time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
