    It's close to where I live. My days and hours of work stay the same. The manager is fair doesn't show favoritism.

    Cons

    It's not very good money. When people quit or don't show up they expect you to come in or work longer with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more reliable people or fire the unreliable that is always late or don't show up. Increase the pay for the reliable hard workers there.
