      Pros

      Great Benefits. Decent Pay. Easy to apply quick hire. Great Job if you desperately need one and in need to make quick money.

      Cons

      No personal life. Long hours and tons of mandatory overtime. If you don’t work the overtime you get written up. No support from leadership you on your own. They throw you under the bus in a heart beat. Co workers are worst than the inmates. All together a very mentally draining environment. Run!! Promotions and new Positions are all about who knows who.
