Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There's no balance in work and salary. The company is not capable of workers safety special after work, for example is you working the late shifts, you have to see yourself what will take you home safe.

Pros

You pay for lunch

It a good company or shop to work on it

It a good company to work on it and it teaches you as individual to grow and be positive in life know what you want in life, what I like the most that everyone can claim the comparative lender and become even a regional manager they don't out source managers

Cruddy

This company is literally going out of business they are terrible with their employees and if somebody above you makes mistake it's okay but if you make the mistake it could cost you your job but nobody in management is ever wrong they're always right no matter the situation
