    Pros

    The summer is the time to make the most money. The company was also very understanding when it came to family and personal life. The owner takes his time to engage with employees.

    Cons

    Pay was not enough for me. Insurance rates were way too high. Winters are rough because the business slows down. This could be for a good 3-4 months.
