      Engaged management, competitive pay, good benefits, decent amount of PTO. Overall awesome place to work.


      While not a con if you’re in it for the long run, and the employee retention speaks wonders for the work environment, there is limited shorter term upward mobility. Most individuals that come here tend stay and managers have 20-30yrs at the company.

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?


      Quality Assurance Associate

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?
