    "CDC is not the job for me"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at MWR

    Pros

    Pays not that bad and the benefits if you get lucky enough to get full time.

    Cons

    Lucky if you get your breaks even though it’s a requirement. Lucky to even leave on time because ratio comes before anything else you have going on outside of work

    Advice to Management

    Stop over working people. Have everyone have set hours to where folks won’t quit because telling folks “til no longer needed” isn’t going to keep people.
