    Pros

    The people culture, the bonds you create with your staff it’s like having another family.

    Cons

    The company does not treat their employees good. The customers are horrible even if your being nice to them they still treat us like slaves. Health care benefits that you provide for salary managers should also be for your hourly managers because they too put just as much effort and time into working hard and long hours. Instead of only giving 24 hrs a year for sick pay give us more. Almost quarterly reviews ...... what is a dime or twenty cents going to do for my checks, NOTHING !!! If you want people to stay then treat your hourly staff right.
