    ASG does not hire contractors. Pay is based on experience and also based on the job.

    Pros

    - Opportunities to get more hours in schedule
    - Multiple shifts to choose from (morning, midday, night)
    - Very lax, sedentary environment

    Cons

    - Very dysfunctional management, virtually no communication between superior officers
    - Overtime/ holiday pay sometimes neglected in payroll
    - Scheduling sometimes only allowed for 8 hours in between shifts
    - Very poor notification system of new company policies/ schedule changes
    - Employment tends to resemble a "revolving door," many newcomers are usually fired within the first month

Also, it breeds both ignorance and arrogance, neither of which are acceptable or applicable in a healthy working environment.
