    Argo offered a surprisingly high starting salary. Was very informative during the interview about what to expect. Many employees are quite laid-back.

    The vast majority of upper-level staff are some of the rudest beings I've ever personally encountered. Knowing that I had little to no experience in the field, I expected to be taught how to do the things I was expected to do. That was hardly the case. I was thrown very advanced tasks and had not the slightest clue what to do and was mocked and make to feel like a fool when I asked for help, but harshly scolded when I would make a mistake due to complete lack of training. The company's owner is an absolute dreadful person to have the misfortune to be around, and made a point to belittle me in some shape, form, or fashion every single time he would come into contact with me, which was quite often considering my office was next to his. The location being in an EXTREMELY dangerous part of time was just the icing on the cake.
