    Pros

    Coworkers are nice to work with.

    Worked there for almost a year, done everything above and beyond what was expected of me and out of the blue was told my position was no longer available. I was offered a part time, night and weekends position. Was promised a bonus check for 4 months. Just a heart less company.
