Review:

"A Brutal Workplace"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

I suggest trying to lax up a bit with people so that they aren't stressed. People who aren't stressed will do better anyways.

Pros : The pay here is amazing and I could not ask for more along those lines, including paid leave and vacation days.
Cons : If you screw up you will quickly be shown the door and replaced with someone else. You don't have much room to breathe here.
