    Pros

    They pay very well. They have good benefits.

    Cons

    In case of emergency the company will give you the ok to take off but when you return they will terminate you.

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration that employees' sometimes have emergency that comes up and they have no control over natural causes and if they keep terminating everyone who have family emergency that the company will continue to have a big turnover. Also PLEASE WEAR GLOVES WHEN TOUCHING THOSE CAKES, AND CLEAN BELTS WHEN BUGS HAVE BEEN SPOTTED ON CONVEYER BELTS.
