    Pros

    There is a great deal of money to be made right off the bat. And hours based raises guarantee you will get raises. The benefits package is also very, very good! One of the best I've ever seen, union or non-union. The employee stock ownership plan is also very lucrative if you're with the company long enough.

    Cons

    The compensation "tops out" around $16/hr. depending on where you work, in a part-time position. The hours based raises do pose a problem if you are very good at your job, because you will make less than incompetent people who happened to get hired first.

    Can't knock the benefits.

    Promotions are hard to come by because it is so competitive, and political. All of the supervisiory positions take at least five years to move into and are somewhat based on seniority.

    This is a very unprofessional environment, just make sure you play the politics and make nice with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Make promotions more performance based, as well as the raise policy. It is set across the company, but should be given wiggle-room for stand-outs.

    Good business model, and solid a solid job by management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good stable job in a horrible economy. Equipment is excellent. Employee stock option as a retirement plan has an excellent return rate.

    Cons

    You always feel expendable. New upper level management has a different approach. Spending money at a record pace, making what appears to be bad decisions on their part and then preaching to the employees about how much the employees are hurting the company.

    Advice to Management

    Remember how you got to where you are. Showing loyalty to the hired help is just as important as showing loyalty to the upper level. Sometimes it appears that as fast as the management moves up in this company they are more interested in their own careers than the long term well-being of the company. The employees are the foundation to sucess.
