It's hard to ever advance in the company unless your related to the owner, management, or lucky to be in one of their clicks.
Pay is ok and for new employees, ignorance is bliss I guess. They will never know that travel pay and benefits were stolen away by management even though profits have only soared over the last decade. Tell me why on earth would anyone travel around to 3rd world countries for weeks at a time when the pay is the same as working in the shop? It was always time and a half for travel plus expenses, now that goes straight to the company (owners profit).
