    Pros

    they offer good benifits including 401k w/match about 4 differtent schedules plenty of o/t PTO

    Cons

    no real down side for me as long as you follow the rules and procedures and good attitude your fine.

    Advice to Management

    be sincere to employees when you say you want to help then take time to listen and work with them since they give thier time to be there just like the managers do respect the associates so the associates can respect the managers and supervisors...no one is superior everyone is expendable, regardless of your title.
