      Learned a lot here, but would not stay for long

      Pros

      I learned a lot of different things here and had broad responsibilities. Picked up several different skills that could be useful in other fields. Learned to avoid office politics.

      Cons

      Working long hours everyday without weekends for busy seasons, which are very frequent and long throughout the year. Not conducive for a healthy work/life balance. Supervisor is disorganized and does not train effectively, leaving workers to figure out most tasks on their own. There is also too much office politics that create a toxic work environment.

      Pros

      Good pay. The work is not bad

      Cons

      Long hours, If the boss don't like you they will find away to get rid of you. Sexual harassment went on around the office. Tried to show they cared about you and your family but that was far from the truth. Everyone else can do wrong and get away with it but I got wrote up every time I turned around.
