    Pros

    Flexible schedule. That's about the only positive.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. One person has all the power. Owner is absent and allows that person complete control. Mood swings and screaming are the norm. Threats are common place. All the staff try to stay away as much as possible. A very dysfunctional environment.

    Advice to Management

    The owner needs to step up and stop all the craziness. I don't believe he will however because this has been the story for a very long time. High staff turn over has to be very expensive. Try being honest and kind and maybe you wouldn't have a revolving door of people running away in masses.
    125 people in 10 years? This statistic is crazy for an employer of only 15 people at a time?
