    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at USG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits 401k retirement paid holidays paid vacation good pay! I've worked far worse jobs for far less pay and no benefits.

    Cons

    Typically work six days a week and schedule can change at the last minute. I'd rather work too much than not enough and be unable to pay my bills.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for people's time and personal life. It's hard to make plans especially hotel reservations when the schedule changes without warning.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at USG.

    Interview

    Overall very straightforward and pleasant phone interview. Recruiter spoke casually and honestly while still asking a lot of the right hard hitting questions. Didn't realize phone interview was last component of the process until I got offer the next week
