    Pros

    Good perks, such as low interest leases on cars

    Cons

    Hide information from employees. The Cranbury location was recently closed for one day (Monday) because the company fumigated the place on a Saturday and apparently it takes 48 hours. Everyone had to return to work on the Tuesday and that's when the employees were informed that they had a positive case for Corona virus. I understand that its a privacy issue and don't expect to be told who it is, but my question is WHY ARE THE ASSOCIATES NOT BEING TOLD TO QUARANTINE?
