    I have been working at Kane is Able full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fellow associates are fantastic, as long as they are not cronies of current regime

    Cons

    CEO and Senior Leadership team are worthless. All in positions that are way over their ability. Zero leadership. CEO is more interested in how he will get additional frequent flier miles from his travel delays, then running the company.

    Advice to Management

    RESIGN. Kane family. PLEASE get rid of this entire group. KANE Culture is dead with this group in charge

    Pros

    There r no pros no raises and every reason to try to make u fail

    Cons

    No raises very bias promises never given always find a way to not give u room to advance give u time to use but get fired if u use it. Management is a joke. If they like u then u stay if not ur targeted for anything to get rid of u. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. The place is a revolving door no respect for hard and dedicated workers also u have no life cause they tell u there's only o.t here and there but its everyday and mandatory weekends. Not a place to work no matter how bad u need work

    Advice to Management

    HONOR YOUR WORD AND FOLLOW BBB RULES. TREAT PEOPLE LIKE HUMAN BEINGS
