    Pros

    People you work with are very good with the exception of a few. Laid back as far as working, your not rushed. Work is easy most of the time.

    Cons

    Starting pay is below par, but you know this going into the job, don't complain afterwards, you agreed to it. Favoritism with "some" management giving the good jobs to those that are friends. Didn't ever except 3 or 4 times get 40 hours, was around 35 to 37 hours per week, not enough work in order selector department.

    I have been working at Connection full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everything from appreciating every level of worker to understanding family and being there to help when needed, I have never worked for a better company. This company has made me feel like I am important and has helped me grow and learn so much. Not the typical corp. company that you think of, they actually value every person and what they bring to the table.

    Cons

    none that I can think of, honestly two years into this company and I have NO bad things to say.

    Advice to Management
