Review:

"Avoid This Workplace "

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Make sure that your employees are more relaxed and spread out the extra work more fairly with advanced warning ahead of time.

Pros : The pay here is extremely generous for what the average workload is and they let you go home early if you finish early.
Cons : Every day I felt like it was going to be my last day or a day with more work thrown at me.
