    Pros

    Good benefits and pay is decent

    Cons

    Know matter what kind of worker u r, lazy or hard. The only way u will get promoted is if u know someone in the company. U can pass or fail a test but if u know someone u r in. So people r getting promoted with a lot of experience, and they can do their work in a timely manner or there is more accidents. So if your plans is to move up with this company, then I hope I know someone. Otherwise, don't waste your time applying into this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire base off of qualifications, not who the person knows.
