    Pros

    The pay is great.
    Union helps more often than not.

    Cons

    You have to be related of their best friend to get promoted.
    Management is just a bunch of old women with no degrees, just mothering, I mean, management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really do a better job with hiring middle management. They don't know what they're doing.
