  • Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?
    The pay sucks compared to the work that you have to do. Especially being, no matter what job you do, your always in some type of pain. They don't give the proper tools needed, when you ask, they just want you to deal with it the best you can which makes your job frustrating
