They spread out the work to a bunch of people, so you're only getting 5 hours when you used to get 20-40 hours a week. Will hire and hire and hire and hire because the people they initially hired aren't getting enough work and quit. Company doesn't prioritize or even recognize good work ethic from a good employee. Management is distanced and often rude. They miss payments very often even though your work is inputted through the computer, which should stop that from happening, and it becomes a long process to get paid which inevitably falls onto your shoulders to fight for your money.
Would recommend if you want very scarce work and minimal hourly.
Can create your own work schedule. Work changes so you don't often get bored.
