    Pros

    Great pay, great people, paid education.

    Cons

    Would schedule for hours and then call off later. Irritating. Union dues are also the same no matter hours worked. So if you work 4 hours in a period for any reason you'll lose over half your paycheck to the union.

    Advice to Management

    None
