    Pros

    good work environment with most co workers

    Cons

    the massive crippling debt the company is and they are filing for bankruptcy, they will not give you full time, they will not pay overtime and you will still be expected to do all of the work of overtime.

    upper management should stop crippling the station Pd's and let them hire a staff to be able to train and have competence
