Pros

I like the customers and the work itself is not bad. The scheduling is done three weeks in advance, which is a good thing.

Cons

Management is VERY adversarial with the employees. They ask you to do tasks in an impossible time frame. Management lies to the employees with impunity. We get bonuses every quarter and an average hourly rate added on holidays. The bad news is your hours will be cut for the next month. I'm a full time employee and haven't made over 35 hours in 6 months. Management's bonuses are based in part on payroll. So we end up understaffed with very few hours each. That is what's most irritating.

Advice to Management

Quit being do greedy, and help your employees.
