    -preferential treatments -it’s run like a good old boys club -the current airport didn’t continua leases on several of their fast food unit -barely get your hours actually don’t even get the hours to qualify you for medical benefits -my boss makes up the rules as he/she goes along, giving preferential treatment to the people she/he hires when they’ve pulled no shows and writing up others for infractions of lesser consequences -at times you feel like your in the twilight zone -so much drama due to discord it makes going to work everything not a pleasurable experience at all
