      Pros

      Great co-workers and working environment

      Cons

      Management promises full time hours and overtime during interview. Then the very first week the schedule is minimal (2 days) under the guise of "training" and promised hours never materialize. They over hire student staff with the same promise of long hours everyone, then come July lay off when it is nearly impossible for students to get another job. Completely unacceptable bait and switch hiring practice
