    I worked at SGN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Varied work can keep the job interesting , but overall not many pros

    Cons

    Certain Management have bully boy tactics but seem to be allowed to get away with it . Standby is far to excessive and not healthy working 17 hour days and being expected to go out in middle of night after that . Pay for the responsibility the job carrys is shocking. High turn over of staff yet no one questions why.

    Advice to Management

    not worth writing as they will not listen

    I worked at SGN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Provides a regular wage, which can be really good if you work every hour god sends

    Unhealthy working hours, no chance of progression unless your face fits, aggressive management, every moment of every day watched and scrutinized, decades of experience goes unrecognized
