When you work hard you deserve the best.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Lyndhurst, NJSeptember 11, 2012
Workers at this facility have to put up with a lot of set back. Recognition is not given when deserved. Unqualified people are put in positions that aren't deserved, but when qualified people reserve the right for certain positions they are denied. There is circle built for whom in management wants to be in certain positions which is not good work ethics. Due to so many people that deserve it.
Pros
clean working environment
Cons
management is very uneasy. not stable employment
