    Pros

    Consistent scheduling if you work 40h a week. Management is skilled, amazing HR.

    Cons

    The union in my area seems to value seniority over merit. This can make things difficult on part time, supplanting income, and college students.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to invest in your employees moral. Remember that they are people too that need to be seen and cared about, not just another body on the floor.
