    Pros

    Great coworkers and service manager, made a great team. Training was not the best but as a group we made it work.

    Cons

    One overbearing, egomaniacal manager in the region was the bad apple of the bunch. Pay was decent, time off was good but not easy to use.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager for the region. Policy of just eliminating positions instead of allowing for transfers is devastating to families and totally unnecessary.
