Think strategic and long term. Organization needs to know that true quality will require a process shift and money.

    Pros

    The people you meet and it is a nice relaxed atmosphere. You are given a job to do and left to do it. I am not full time but do work between 35-40 hours a week. The manager is very good about being flexible in scheduling.

    Cons

    Not much chance of moving to full time employment. They hire in primarily part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at the employees that are dependable and try to learn and excel or you will lose them to other job opportunities and be left with the ones that cannot be counted on to work as a team. This is a good company to work for, I wish I wasn't in the position to look elsewhere for full time employment.
