    Pros

    Wonderful people, excellent boss, flexible work schedule. I loved being able to get certified to use a forklift, and the amount of experience I've gained is invaluable.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is very bureaucratic. I would like to think the company has their own best interests at heart when selecting an individual to bring onto a full-time position.

    Advice to Management

    Amend your admissions policies.
