    Pros

    Commission sales. You can make big money. Great insurance benefits. Union job. Easy positions

    Cons

    Seniority everything. If you are new, its 10 years to get a decent day time schedule. Must work weekends and all holidays. Expect first couple years to cover the overnight shift and not make much money. Dying business model. No need for humans in 5 years or less. A lot of jobs here have to work outside in the florida heat with no water coolers outside. High pressure sales needed to make real money, may effect your sleep and integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Care about employees over company numbers. Cant control the company offering low rental rates.

    Pros

    It's a stable job with plenty of hours, reasonable pay and benefits. There are opportunities to move up but they are not as appealing as that seem at first.

    Cons

    All scheduling is done by seniority thus making a balance of work and home life hard to accomplish until you've been around a few years. The structure of commissions means that the counter employees with seniority will almost always take the shifts with the best opportunities to earn more money and you may get stuck on graveyard shift for a year or more.

    Advice to Management

    Pay night shift and slower shift employees a little more to help them cope with less opportunity for sales commissions.

    Pros

    Overall the people are great however they are losing talent fast and the culture that made it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Right now its all about cost cuts, unfortunately they can't get that done correctly. New lay-offs every week versus doing one mass one

    Advice to Management

    Cut big, cut once then move forward. You need to grow revenue
