      Pros

      The culture is based around safety as that is the top priority for the company. Pay and benefits are exceptional. The company also offers tuition reimbursement. Management team is second to none. They keep you informed and reward you for your hard work and dedication to the company. Plenty of opportunities to move up the ranks. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded.

      Cons

      Rotating shift can make home life difficult.
