      Weekends, evenings and holidays. Management is not unionized, but employees are which can create an "us against them" environment at times.

      Pros

      * The training is up to date and high tech * Lots of opportunities to move up in the company with appropriate scaling * It is a union position, so there's a lot of different benefits including health insurance and assistance to pay post-secondary education if you meet their qualifications *Pension plan for full-time employees * Profit-sharing * Flexible schedules which really help students

      Cons

      * No discount on liquor * Three-month probationary period (stressful) * If no prior experience, you begin at 15.00$ which barely covers rent in Alberta even if you work full-time.
