    Pros

    I love the department and the people I worked with. The management team was amazing. I also love the benefits that was provided. They gave me opportunities to advance in my department.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that fact that the company moved locations and I couldnt work with them any more.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management. I think that they did an amazing job creating a good working environment.

    Pros

    The pay was excellent plus if you met your daily goal in collections for that day anything over that went on your bonus check!! All my fellow coworker's were great! Excellent supervisors! And the classes that they offer are really interesting....it keeps you focused and awake! Loved it there and I made a lot of new best friends!!!

    Cons
