    Pros

    Observation and study of various human behavior

    Cons

    Meager pay and strongly believed I had the capability to perform more roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Managers generally tend to run a company or establishment more proficiently when they have the mindset of managing people, not the systematic concept of managing a company.

    Pros

    Job stability, one you get hired Thanks to the union it is virtually impossible to lose your job unless you steal something

    Cons

    Long hours,there is not enough help for the amount of work that is expected to get done,but they still expect the same amount of work. They just want warm bodies,so if you know what you are doing you get punished by being expected to take up everyone else's slack

    Advice to Management

    Hold your people accountable for their actions and value those who step up to the plate.stop taking advantage of your dedicated associates
