    I worked at K Line America, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Relatively chilled environment with continuous workflow. Good job for person wanting to roll through work all day.

    Cons

    Most people wear masks. Stay to yourself and you'll be fine. Don't divulge any personal information to anyone. Don't assume that because people smile and talk with you that they can be trusted. Management calls customers crack heads and constantly complain about how the customer is always wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Poor corporate culture. Learn to keep confidential information CONFIDENTIAL. Don't offer to help someone if you will only use it as a side note of their incompetence later. Get a trainer and take some leadership classes.

    Pros

    Strong benefits package and work/life balance.
    Talent and production is consistently recognized and rewarded.

    Cons

    Salaries are well below average.
    Overall office culture lacks enthusiasm and innovation. Most employees have little interest beyond doing the minimum requirements of their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    In hiring, look for candidates with ambition and potential instead of those who are most likely to stick at that position for several years. You may need to offer higher salaries to attract them. Focus more on innovation instead of reacting to market changes with a wait and see approach.
