Because we have so many locations, the hours vary. Our office locations are standard Monday-Friday but our manufacturing and distribution locations include additional shifts and may require overtime during busy seasons. Our goal is always to get product to the customer on time which means sometimes we have to put in extra hours.

Take everything into consideration before making a decision that can impact someone's life like being employed or not. Communicate with the employees, have reviews and talks regarding how they're job is going instead of just getting rid of them. Especially if they're actually interested and willing to learn, give people a chance and try not to make them feel so unwanted.
