    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The job was great. It kept me busy to where my work days went by quickly. The management team really values and recognizes good work ethics when they see it.

    Cons

    They had me working as a supervisor for about 75% of the time I was working there and I should have been paid the same amount as the supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Might want to consider raising the pay for all positions because it's entirely too much work for the little pay.
