Excellent In all aspects
STAFF SERVICES COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Provo, UtahMay 26, 2012
Pros: respect, room for advancement, excellent staff morale
Cons: no breaks, none really needed ever.
The company treats its employees extremely well and provides them with opportunities to advance and grow. I love the fact that I got paid to "play" such as hiking, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, etc but still was provided a more professional training and treated with respect from all.
