    Pros

    Pay was more than minimum wage

    Cons

    Since there is no union they are allowed to treat the employees like crap and do away with you when you are no longer of use to them. Shows favortism to all of their friends since management positions are basically workers who moved up the ranks. Very much like high school, you go to a higher up to resolve an issue with someone in confidence and they run back and tell the other employee everything you told them. They are very gossipy BEWARE!

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over. I was at the East Chicago, Indiana, location.
