    Nothing great- not anythings positive to say about this company. You own yourself better condition so just pass them by.

    Treat you any old way they want, if you work have they work you harder. Lazy people get special treatment and their owners are spoiled brats....they don't care and they do not listen.

    Get others to run the company and go to work for someone other than mommy ans daddy.
