      Pros

      A company that's knows what they're doing and they do it well. You'll make a better than decent wage starting, on top of that you'll get a wonderful benefit package. The other employees, mark a couple, are very easy to work with, and are great at training. You'll feel like a member of the team in no time at all. The leadership will actually help fill orders, they have wealth of knowledge, and experience, and will give you advice when asked. They promote an incredibly safe work environment, and work hard to keep employees from getting hurt. You are their priority. All in all, I'd still be working here if I were medically allowed to.

      Cons

      I couldn't find any issues working here.
