    Pros

    Everyone was motivated and wanted to strive to do their best at the tasks at hand, which made everyone want to do better. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Everything was run on a point system, if you had the flu and missed work and had a doctors note, your still going to get a point. after 12 points in a year your fired. Also you can not clock in early if you do then you will have points taken away, and if you clock out late to. Also if your department is falling behind in work be ready to put in fourteen hour days and work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over work your employees if you want good workmanship done on each car.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours and half decent pay. Lots of overtime if you want. A lot of places to learn and skills to acquire.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover with managers and employees. Never sure on what time you will leave at or if you will work the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees better, they might stick around more. Keep the convicts to a minimum.
