A good place to work as a student or young adult looking for a stable job. the main downside working here is that working in the winter is very slow and boring.

During my time at McMunn and Yates they have made it clear that they do not value staff or their opinions, displaying this though their horrible wages and complete lack of interest in what you are saying or telling them
Pros
Gain a sense of community as everyone there is disenchanted by the orginization
Cons
Low wages, untrained management

Working day can vary due to weather and a person would need to be very adaptable to change. Very performance based work and hard to pass ideas up to management. Top down culture.

Was not the highest paying company to work for but they keep you busy. They are friendly and have fair equipment. But not a stable life long carrier for me.

Did not treat all staff equal. I was working there for a few years and schedules would be made unfairly. Favoured staff received better hours. Overall management was poor, people would steal and the manager would accuse innocent people stealing.

Its a good place to learn about sales, inventory, warehouse, etc. the best part of the job is the people and the culture. lost of opportunities to change hours.
