    Pros

    Hourly techs, salary managers. Slow periods leave time to do whatever you want.

    Cons

    Company supports screwing customers, corporate management is horrible, federal and state laws are NOT followed, employee treatment is garbage, managers will manipulate you, and if they can't they fire you. Benefits are sub-par. Wage opportunities are lower than industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    FOLLOW STATE LAW.
