    Cons

    Unfortunately for me its more like being in high school. The toxic work environment, favoritism, poorly structured and stressful work environment.

All while having a better position dangled over my head like a carrot and essentially doing the work of that position while not being paid the wage until my three months of training was completed and my online test were completed in order to receive the pay raise for the position I was already doing.
