    Pays well for a long hard days work

    Pros

    None that I can think of..

    Cons

    Too many to list...Benefits are too expensive, pay not equitable to workload, and high turnover due to exceptionally low pay.

    Don't underbid a job and work the staff into the ground to cut labor cost to make up for your food cost overage.
