    Pros

    - Three 12 hour shifts, where a differential pay to make equal to week shift (four 10 hour shifts).
    - Higher salary for area, making it hard to leave.
    - Able change position every six months.

    Cons

    - Manual labor position, where it is near impossible to consistently make production requirements (written up).
    - Raises don't happen anymore, except $.25 a year (was $.25 quarterly).
    - Cost of healthcare rise, benefits lowered (cost cutting).
    - Given extra tasks to perform, then written up for low production (No "down time").
    - Good ol' boy system to an extreme!!! Requires Bachelors for area manager but give sketchy reasoning of why promotion isn't offered (I am working on Masters degree, military veteran and over qualified).

    Advice to Management

    Giving no incentive achievement awards to people doesn't make up for the writing people up until they are almost fired. This tactic of fear is affective to a point but will cause people to find less stressful employer. Sometimes it is ok to give respect to employees and quit downing area managers in front of employees and employees.
