    I have been working at Bumble Bee full-time

    Pros

    -Awesome company culture
    -Large yet small company
    -Decent pay with above average benefits
    -Good leadership
    -Working for a company that believes in what they do

    Cons

    This is a very demanding job, you have to be ready to work hard every day you walk into Petco Park. Not necessarily a con if you like to work hard.

    Understand the workloads of all the employees and see who can use some help.
