22. May I ask why I was just telling my honest experience, but am being
attacked? Didn't mean any harm in my post, I was just being honest about MY company. That's it. And believe me, any of you would probably agree 100% if you saw them. Put it this way, the average amount of pours any regular joe off the street could do on his first full day on the job is 80. Absolute minimum. Yet the average daily pour rate of our compounders is only around 50. Now I'm sorry, but to me that is just unacceptable.
