      Pros

      The only thing that made it worthwhile was my coworkers

      Cons

      Honestly they're breaking so many labour laws, don't treat their workers with the respect that they need, racist, and most importantly are taking advantage of their workers kindness. Workers that have been there for over 20 years are being forced to quit as this is the worst place to work in Ontario.
