    Pros

    we have early morning shift but its part time work the pay is great and you even get to travel the atmosphere is wonderful and the people and the bosses are like family

    Cons

    the only thing that I can say here is that you have to learn how to use your machine you're counting machine but once you get a hang of it it's smooth sailing.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Lots of traveling. Some decent coworkers. Direct deposit and never any payroll issues.Learned a new skill set.

    Cons

    I had a hard time coming up with pros for this job. I could go on for days about the cons. Everything is a disaster there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the lazy unprofessional idiots you have in management and find people with actual experience.

    Pros

    In the Santa Fe Springs office, I really appreciate my Area Manager & Crew Managers. I like the wide age range of employees it has. It's a great opportunity for those just starting out in the workforce and for those who are near or already retired, but wish to continue working.

    Cons

    If you are looking for full-time employment at the entry level, this is not the case. Working very early mornings and working very late evenings even into the next morning is the norm in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the 'espirit de corp' with your all of your leadership managers.

    Pros

    If you are desperate, they will hire literally anyone. (I was told to wear business casual to the interview. One girl in my interview group wore a bright blue velour track suit and ugg boots to the interview and got hired.)

    Cons

    This job actually began to ruin my life, so I had to quit. I have a husband and a young son who I never saw because of the ridiculously long days and hours. I would only work then come home and fall asleep. Early morning start times suck when the job is 1-3hrs away. I did not have time for anything else in my life. Having to go to bed at 7pm in order to get 8hrs of sleep is very difficult. My 3yr old doesn't even go to bed that early. I have taken more benadryl (to fall asleep at ridiculously early times) during my time with WIS than I have in my entire life. Sadly, that is not an exaggeration. I still never got enough sleep. The straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak, was me being so sleepy that I fell off of a ladder.

    Caliber of people definitely the lowest I've encountered at a job. What a bunch of degenerates. Everyone is rude and self-serving. No one is ever willing to help you, even the supervisors. Training is a joke. My training was 1hr in the office which did not at all prepare me for working in a store. My friend was tossed into her first day, no one would help her, and I had to work a different section of the store and couldn't help much. She quit on her first day.
    Had one supervisor constantly rubbing her education in everyone's face as if none of the rest of us could possibly have a college education. Granted, I'm guessing most of the people there don't, and maybe I'm wrong for making that judgement, but some of us are college educated and just needed a side job. Times are hard. Education or not, every person deserves respect, which we did NOT receive at WIS.

    Definitely NOT a career job. Find something better for yourself!

    Advice to Management

    Hire less people. Pay the ones you hire more money to attract a higher class of worker. Stop the "wait time" BS where you pay minimum wage to you workers for time that they cannot help standing around.
