It's a pretty horrible place, and that starts with how they post their jobs without proper hours/pay (especially for titles such as 'Supervisor', as those are not just slightly above minimum wage...they should be treated as professional management jobs, not silly camp positions). Recruiters/HR are very negative and ignorant to anyone outside of the corp, so be careful as a candidate as they just only care about themselves (very selfish people).

What benefits? People get benefits? huh...don't think any of the jobs since 2010 or earlier, have had benefits as it's an old boys/old girls club at the top that have them all and don't speak up for contract employees. Everything is now short term, casual part time - minimum wage (or just slightly above minimum wage), without any benefits.
