                  - Drastically depends on your specific team when it comes to culture - In balanced teams, the work/life balance is good - Generally, gives you the equipment you need to do your job

                  Cons

                  - Drastically depends on your specific team when it comes to culture - In unbalanced teams, the work/life balance is not there, and lots of time and effort is wasted on things that get thrown out the next week - The overall umbrella culture is quite older, and things can take a long time with many processes and many people to go through before anything can be done - Overall pretty drastic lack of diversity, especially as you look at leadership - Probably shouldn't be the last point, but at one big company event a few years back two female employees were assaulted and leadership's 'handling' of the event was not great

                      Hello all. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. I've been searching for a job for 8 months now. I'm not sure if it's me or the companies not returning emails. I've had 3 interviews. I've had recruiters say they will email me and no emails. I'm getting really desperate for a job. I have production experience of 10 years. Manufacturing for 4 years. I'm on indeed, glassdoor, monster jobs, cannabis careers, craigslist, LinkedIn. I reved up my resume 3 times. Help please!

                      When I'm applying to a new job, can I reuse letters of recommendation? I'm applying at an org I previously applied at but for a different position. Is it okay to reuse and not even change the position?
