    Pros

    The company's main focus is safety. Looking out for employees well being and safe return home is a priority. The benefits are some of the best anywhere. They pay, per position, is more than fair. On top of great pay, there's a ton of overtime to earn even more. There's ample opportunities for wage increases, and they hand out bonuses, which are also more than fair. Overall, this company takes care of its employees, and rewards for safe performance..

    Cons

    It doesn't matter what your occupation in this world is. There's always some sort of BS. But, with this company, there's really nothing to complain about..

    Pros

    great communication of what the management expects and what they plan on doing in the future, helpful coworkers, friendly environment, a lot of opportunities to move up the scale

    Cons

    no social life, hard to schedule appointments due to the fact you don't know what time you'll get off each day

    Advice to Management

    stop taking on more jobs than you can handle so everyone can have a steady time they can leave so they can schedule appointments without having to take their earned time off to go to them and so that everyone can get home and actually have a life outside of work
