    Pros

    If you just want a job to coast through life then it's a decent place. As long as you do your job correctly, management leaves you alone other than calling to ask if you want overtime.

    Cons

    They pay based on location and not the employee. I was making $11 an hour, but when I switched to a different location I was dropped to $8 after 5 years of working for them. Turn over rate is extremely high. Management has a serious lack of communication when you need anything.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees based on their value, not based on their location.

    Pros

    The initial training. The instructor Mr. D.T. was awesome and professional. He and the recruiter Mrs. Michelle are great.

    Cons

    The rest of the management staff is arrogant,rude, and out for themselves. Glad i got transferred but already had another job. The managers take over accounts. Keep one of the knowledgeable employees train the incoming staff. Then find some lame excuse to get you to take a lower paying position. Glad god blessed me to tell the building i worked for and Walden bye bye and hell no im not taking a position paying me 6 dollars less✌peace out.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees that make tons of money for your company. Stop insulting them by offering low wages.
