    Pros

    Raise every 3 months until max pay reached.
    Set schedules
    Access to a physical therapist every week for 15 minutes
    Paid sick time (correlates with state sick leave)
    Paid vacation time (accumulates at about 2 hours per week or faster if you work overtime)
    Paid Holidays
    2 floating holidays (2 paid days off to use whenever)
    Paid, complete, 3 month training
    No more random drug tests (they still test at hire)
    Quarterly bonus!
    You can change job positions every 6 months if you wanted.

    Cons

    Difficult to report and solve problems
    Training is not complete, you don’t learn everything you need to know about attendance rules, contacts, taking time off, etc. pretty much the only things you can actually get fired for doing wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a “feedback” protocol where employees can send in suggestions and things that need to be improved.
