    Pros

    Guaranteed 40 hour work week with decent pay. Management isn't awful and works hard to keep company moving along. Difficulty of job ranges from super easy to extremely strenuous.

    Cons

    I enjoyed working there at first. Then I noticed that no matter how hard I worked it was never good enough. You're expected to learn the job within a day and if you don't know how to do something you get scolded real quickly for it. They expect you to work more than 40 hours but don't want to pay you for overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Don't kill yourself trying to impress upper management, your terrible pay check is not worth the amount of time and effort that is put into your job.
