    Pros

    The culture is very relaxed, very open to asking questions. The benefits are very good, very reasonable, but very poor if you have a long commute.

    Cons

    Other departments seem to look down upon others. Very little room for advancement, though they promote their hire within policy early and often.

    They do offer a Weekly paycheck.

    Cons

    Low pay. Hard, physical work. 12hrs shifts.little to no training. Rules that resemble a cult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VCard ommunicate, not just with your employees but with each other. No one knows what's going on. How this company stays in business let alone makes money is any ones guess.

    Pros

    Burning lots of calories from standing/walking/moving constantly!

    Cons

    You will work 12-hour days 3 to 4 days a week, with mandatory overtime 1 day a week. And the mandatory overtime is on-call, so you find out 3 hours before your shift if you have to work or not. It's awful. Your hands and body will definitely be feeling this job also, it's not easy work. The employees don't get paid enough for what they do. Also, the uniforms are so uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A regular work schedule would be so nice. Or at least not being on call for overtime.
