      Pros

      Good vacation opportunity when not cancelled. Excellent Teamsters Health coverage.

      Cons

      Forced OT up to legal limit on 70 hour rule in as few days as needed so you can get a restart. Even though you are home everyday you might forget what your family looks like because most of the time you'll be working.

      Pros

      Stayed busy with the amount of customers. Most people were great to work with. The furthering education reimbursement is fabulous!

      Cons

      They do not want to advance their own employees even after they pay for the education. Only allowed to advance so many pay grades above your own regardless of skills.
