    Pros

    I cannot think of a single pro

    Cons

    Immature management, low wages, no 401K match, no training, very little guidance. Be prepared to cya every day there. Easily the worst place I've worked in my entire working career. I was offered FT employment, just to be fired within the next 30 days, after I turned down other opportunities. I would not recommend that ANYBODY considers working here.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all departments but I can say that my HR Management team was the least supportive group I have ever worked with. No training , no support or guidance.
