    Raise after 90 days and every 6 months after.

    Communication is key to success which is why this won't last long. Too many inexperienced people in control. They don't even have people skills.

    Pros

    Good hours and days. Flexible management. Love that management recognizes employees birthdays and anniversaries. Goodness cold weather gear and boots. Enjoy vacation time and holidays off.

    Cons

    Hurry up and wait attitude at regional/corporate. Scared to take chances. Won’t spend much needed money to fix deteriorating buildings, ammonia refrigeration systems, and equipment (which could potentially lead to a major safety issue). Loss of several key corporate and regional higher-up employees. It shows they can’t keep talented people around due to the frustration of the company being poorly run. Also, stop keeping some of these terrible employees just because you’re scared of being sued! Focus on the talent and move them up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talented people happy and maybe they’ll stick around.
