    Pros

    Simple and busy work. If you like Overtime it's been busy. Work atmosphere is laid back and sometimes too much.

    Cons

    Have been working about 6 days weekly for over half year. Mandatory overtime makes it unenjoyable. The work is boring and repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you more production, consider incentives per piece and not just hourly pay.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for this company. The management was very helpful and respectful while I was employed for this company. The profit sharing was a plus also.

    Cons

    The pay is less than to be desired and the overall benefits are very spending. There are not very many perks when it comes to raises, they stay on a strict pay raise schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very well equiped. They should try to advance there employees and not hire so much management from outside the company.
