    Pros

    Solid benefit package
    Opportunities to advance
    You get to work with bright people
    Lots of fun company events, such as going out for private movie screenings at a local cinema
    Nice office space to work in

    Cons

    You need to be responsible for your own career, as the company is not strong on helping you to identify a career path
    A little heavy on 'Directors' in the organization: we need fewer bosses and more workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time talking with your employees and letting them know that you recognize their efforts and care about them as employees and as people

    I have been working at Coinstar

    Pros

    A great place to show your handle on technology and use your communication skills, friendly work environment, with helpful supervisors.

    Cons

    Other customer service jobs locally pay better, yet Coinstar still pays above minimum wage and the workplace has less stresssors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reps just want to be on top of all the promotions, the more we know the better we can help and do our job.
