    Pros

    I really liked the hours I was able to get a lot of overtime working there you had different area where you can work so you wasn't in one area doing one job all the time.

    Cons

    the challenge I had there was standing on my feet for 10.5 hours a day six days a week sometimes. And management didn't acknowledge temp workers as far as they weren't invited to parties rewards that was giving out temps didn't receive one, they wasn't included in discussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice I would give Management would be to invest in mats for your employees to stand on.

    Pros

    Nice environment . Great health plans . Pay is good.

    Cons

    To much favoritism. Example I know for a fact a certain Mgr has brought over people from her old company ( A major office supply retail company based in Florida) And every single one of them has been promoted with in there first year over other people who work there rear ends off that have been there 5 to over 10 years!! She even has one gentleman that knows nothing about in inner workings of his department that she has to keep moving around and give him a different title! And yes he was a former employee at her previous employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they should have some one from Corporate take a CLOSE look at the operations in Broward County Florida ( Anda ) division. Talk to some of the long term employees that are still there. That really do their jobs well but feel like they have hit a dead end.
