Pros: unionized, guaranteed hours each week, pleasant co-workers
Cons: long hours, mandatory 20 hour weekends (every weekend), no benefits, raises or bankable vacation as a part time employee, and vacation accrued is paid out bi-weekly.
I really enjoyed my time with Robinson Solutions. I was considered part-time, in a unionized environment at General Motors for almost three years. My position changed over the years from very flexible, to strictly working ten hour shifts every weekend, with a loss of bookable vacation time, and raises. This only became an issue for me as I am currently – more... completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, undergraduate degree to become a Registered Nurse, and being confined to work only weekends, with no room to book them off or work other days, and hours, really affected my studies negatively. The employees were great and management was as helpful as possible. – less
