  1. Good company to work for if hired at a corporate location instead of an acquisition site.

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable work hours but just average work quality. Not satisfying job at all.

    Cons

    No career growth opportunities within the organization. It may be different if one is hired at a corporate location but if you're part of an acquisition site, most likely one would end up doing the same thing without any growth.

    Pros

    Good job if you are in desperate need of a paycheck and have no other options in life and have hit rock bottom.

    Cons

    *Upper management doesn't care about their associates.
    *High turnover; as a result of management not caring about their associates people keep leaving the company and as a result locations are often understaffed and associates have to work harder/longer hours.
    *Upper management tends to be unprofessional and makes up rules as they go despite company policy.
    *HR doesn't maintain confidentiality and if you contact HR regarding an issue with an employee, they will go behind your back and tell them..which results in a hostile work environment.
    *Many managers are not qualified to be a manager, but attained the position due to the "slim pickens" of candidates.
    *Favoritism; if you are not kissing your managers behind you will not get ahead in this company. Many employees/managers seek mistakes in others in order to progress with the company and make themselves look good instead of coaching and motivating others to become a better frontline associate.
    *Contract work; here today, gone tomorrow. You never know.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more involved with the managers at each location. Hire a higher quality of associates/managers. Stop showing favoritism towards certain people. If you continue to treat employees wrong you will lose this contract, as you lost previous contracts in the past.

    Pros

    There is some room for growth, there is limited supervision. Its a pretty good fit for a very young professional looking to get there foot in the door.

    Cons

    There is a lack of vison, goals change very quickly, there is little support. Poor upper management. Salaries are stagnate with little to no raises. There is a bonus structure but its hard to attain.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, internal education and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for the managers to tell their workers thank you more. It would be nice to get raises and promotions and have separate vacation leave and sick time leave instead of one big pot of PTO. . .nice to not worry about losing your job if you are sick a lot. Needs better work/life balance for certain departments/positions.
