    Pros

    Its all about the pay...not too many place you can make 80k a yr in under 4 yrs. I have made some good friends union side and management but its not a lot of them

    Cons

    Way too demanding of time, If you have a special someone in your life i hope the bond is strong. Certain months i have worked over 250 hrs, it takes a toll on ur physical and mental health. Also, union employees can be real asses some times. As FLS we don't hate you for no reason, but we can only take so much of you begging for a "quit" then we give it to you and you still complain. Try growing up. You get paid for 8 hrs and most days you only work 4 of them, trust me you are getting over, this is the only industry that happens in. This is a place where the saying "the prisoners run the prison" is absolutely true...difficult culture to work in for sure

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, no one likes to be lied to. Quit telling ppl the schedule is 3 on 3 when we all know thats not the truth. Quit making saving its all about safety when our meetings are all about metrics and money
