Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Keep new people on standard hours and instead offer overtime for the first week or two if they stay extra for training.

Pros : If you have no other choice in place to work this place will be nearly on par with other places.
Cons : You will be expected to work long hours during your first few months until they trust you enough that you understand your job.
