    Pros

    The majority of the people are friendly, at least to your face and it has a really warm atmosphere. They give you a lot of perks.

    Cons

    Training was very disorganized. I was very capable of excelling at the position but was barely given a chance. I Was fired on my fourth REAL day at work when training was over without warning or barely any word from a supervisor and they were VERY unprofessional and unethical. I was really starting to learn the duties and processes but it is impossible to learn all of it within four days. It might seem like a fantastic place at first but depending on the department, don't get your hopes up too high.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to professionally communicate with your employees if there is any issues, and give them at least two weeks to get comfortable in the position before termination without notice. At least in certain departments. Coaching your employees can go a long way.
