What I like about the company

They had a lot of activities to make sure we all knew each other from different shifts. Donuts or bagels every Friday. And gave us a ton of paid time off to have balance with work and our day to day lie. They offered a lot of great benefits as well.

What I dislike about the company

The managers did not listen to the needs of the people working under them, only a few. Also they could be rude when it should be approached differently to peoples needs and values.
