    Pros

    Once you have high seniority you can get a really good schedule. Rarely work hard for a full 8 hours and usually plenty of overtime. Some of the supervisors look out for their direct reports better than others. Decent benefits for family and employee.

    Cons

    You will most likely have to work overtime to survive. Some management seem like they are miserable and out to get you. Lack opportunity for advancement. Role and responsibilities frequently change without rhyme or reason. Low morale due to pay being inconsistent with the day to day dangers and expectations of the job.
