Rewarding for those who like professional success.

Smaller workweek. Nothing wrong with flex schedules and/or 40 hours 8-5 schedule for managers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    most co-workers were quite friendly

    Cons

    Poverty level wages. was promised benefits in 90 day only to discover they weren't scheduling me enough hours to receive those benefits. Misrepresentation at time of hire. When I asked for the required 20 hrs per week I was denied.

    Advice to Management

    Be more informative to new hires. Your company boasts benefits on all their websites and at job interviews and in processing. They should inform new hires if they don't have the required hours to qualify them for the benefits.
