    Great people to work with and opportunities to advance.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of motivated people who are easy to work with. If you're looking for a company that cares about its community and giving back to those in need, this organization is for you.

    ConsManagement could improve communication with its employees based on what their job responsibilities entail. I disliked having two departments telling me to follow two different sets of directions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication, working with other departments, and boost team moral.

    ConsThe buck stops with you so if you are not ready to take ownership than this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep helping us be competitive

    ConsPay is low for full time employees (lower than they deserve)

    Great Place to Work

    Account Specialist (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsGreat Training
    Freedom to call on who you want as often as you'd like
    Good pay for the education level required
    Benefits
    Advancement Opportunities

    ConsPile on the responsibilities. Most branches are understaffed and struggle to meet the demands of management due to personnel restrictions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire part time help to ease the weight on full timers shoulders. Also, vending is not the answer. Focus more on growth within current accounts to be successful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
