    Like a toxic relationship, it was good in the beginning

    Pros

    Turnover is so high, you will be in a lead role in no time. Condescending/ bullying managers offer you multiple opportunities to build your own character They offer a bus pass There are SO many jobs open!

    Cons

    Pay is far below market rate. Abuse of sick time is tolerated so when you didn't call out you can expect to do the work of 3 people and stay late, but you can also call out as much as you want and no one will bat an eye. ZERO work life balance Staff is short due to a labor crisis, and managers have helped add fuel to the fire by alienating staff and pushing them out the door. Cliques here resemble high-school, this is not an inclusive environment.
