    I have been working at Oakley part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I am a contractor but treated as a full time employee. Everyone I have worked with has been fantastic and great at communicating. I have encounter little to no resistance when driving the hiring process. The employees work as a team and the company treats their employees well with perks and benefits.My boss is the very best i have ever worked for.

    Cons

    It isn't permanent! I work on a contract,part time basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! I love working with Oakley!!
