    Overall great company. Good benefits. Pay has improved, but still needs improvement!

    Working every weekend & holidays!

    Offer opportunity for PT staff to cover to allow FT staff opportunity to have more weekends/holiday time off if desired. Improve praise for job well done over constantly harping to do more and do things better! Management is rarely around when needed on Swing shift!
