    Pros

    The discounts were cool, and I enjoy physical labor.

    Cons

    Management. They're incompetent and two-faced. They make you feel like dirt for using your earned sick pay. My hours were cut drastically because I dared to use a sick day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Get on the same page. Monitor your managers' internet usage. My manager blew up facebook complaining about me using my earned sick time, after I offered to come in anyway. I should have taken pictures.
