    I worked at Dart Container full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fitness Center; employee discount on company product; big company with room for advancement.

    Cons

    Paid time off is mediocre and must be used at a minimum of 2 hours; after 1st 2 hours, at full hour increments (unless your boss likes you enough to grant an exception). Sick pay is only 5 days/year (but after 5 consecutive days, you might be able to use Vacation time). Vacation pay doesn’t grow beyond 2 weeks until at least 3 years after your hire date, but not granted until the following January 1; and the amount added is only 1 day (for a total of 88 hours) until the January 1 after you complete 5 years.
