    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits and good Pto.

    Cons

    A lot of OT but, with the new manger a lot of people left because of the micromanaging and your looked at as a number not a person. This manager just makes so, many people work life harder and over complicate’s everything. The manager took a good thing with this place and is slowly running into the ground, he’s even got people taking early retirement by 5 years because they don’t want to deal with this person anymore. Just be aware if you apply for a job here there defiantly pros but, the one con is defiantly enough to sink any ship.

    Advice to Management

    Change the direction that this manger is sending this branch before it’s too late
