    Pros

    Will hire people with a bad record. Part time employees get benefits, they have 401k. Every 3 months they give a bonus

    Cons

    They do not treat their employees well. They don't pay well, your overworked and under paid, raises once a year are only $0.10

    Advice to Management

    Lots of chances to advance to management but not worth the headache for the little raise in pay you would get.
