    Decent company to work for, no guarantees but they take pretty good care of you. Fairly competitive salary, good 401k match, safe place to work.

    Tough schedule, we rotate 3 days on 3 days off 5 am to 5 pm then 5pm to 5am. Sometimes the company seems unwilling to work with employees to make it a better place to work. I feel the pay could be better for the duties we perform
