      Pros

      If it wasn't for this covid-19 stuff I probably still be working there

      I just don't think they give you any time off after working 7 days for for 5 months and if you miss a day they hold that against

      Pros

      A company that's knows what they're doing and they do it well. You'll make a better than decent wage starting, on top of that you'll get a wonderful benefit package. The other employees, mark a couple, are very easy to work with, and are great at training. You'll feel like a member of the team in no time at all. The leadership will actually help fill orders, they have wealth of knowledge, and experience, and will give you advice when asked. They promote an incredibly safe work environment, and work hard to keep employees from getting hurt. You are their priority. All in all, I'd still be working here if I were medically allowed to.

      Cons

      I couldn't find any issues working here.

      Great company for work/life balance

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The management team is great, they have a continuous improvement policy when it comes to processes and emerging technology, the ability to work from home a few days a week, and encourage continuous growth. I feel that work/life balance is greatly encouraged and I don't feel penalized when things come up such as appointments or surprise occurrences.

      Cons

      Their retirement matching may not be as generous as some other companies, but I feel that many other things make up for that.
