    Pros

    Great opportunity if you can actually get in full time, I do like that they honor seniority, being young it's more of a challenge, but the room to grow is there with hard work and dedication to make the best vehicles.

    Cons

    Work schedule is hectic unless you have been there for years and got a good shift.

    Advice to Management

    They were pretty cool.
