Horrible, you WILL work either 1 or both weekend days until someone who actually has a good m-f schedule does not want to work it. And what's the chances of that? You also will work either a 10 hour shift with 3 days off or an 8 hour shift with 2 days off. and you may work 2 Saturdays within the month at a full schedule. You may be working as late as 10pm

Dress code is really casual. No jeans tho except on Fridays & Weekends. Some of the men wear shorts. The test can be hard. You will need to study outside of work also & u don’t get 6 mo to take it. I think it is more like a few weeks.

Most companies run a credit check when you apply for employment so I would assume they do as well. Unfortunately, I did not have good credit at the time of hire & I had no issues getting employed here.
