    Horrible boss!!!

    Service Technician (Former Employee) Hagerstown, MD

    ProsWorking with elderly customers. most are the nicest people in the world. most of the people in the office are very competent and great to work with.

    ConsI was a service rep For the last year at the Hagerstown MD office after working at a printing company for 24 years. thought it would be a nice change .MISTAKE! 80+ hour weeks on call, no consideration for the safety of drivers. profit trumps everything. including common sense. A center manager that comes in late a lot ,even late for her own meeting .Spends her day playing on her phone, painting her fingernails, go's out during day to get hair done and for tanning, and tells us its none of our business, leaves before anyone else .After a year I still don't know what she does. Got fired last week for shouting at her, sorry it ended that way . but not sorry I don't work there anymore, relief.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart reading your own reviews. get your head out of the sand, people aren't happy. I'm the 7th or 8th driver in my slot in the last three or four years . And come out your offices and see what your managers are doing while their employees are busting their butts. Also I was a LOX driver ,one customers delivery is up 3 flights of stairs, these tanks weigh 140lbs this needs to stop ! It's to hard on the drivers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Limited chances for advancement and very low pay.

    Pac (Former Employee) Casper, WY

    ProsConsistency as there is plenty of work and steady work. Their schedules are set, which can be nice.

    ConsThe pay was very low compared to national and regional averages. Hard company to receive raises at and even then they were marginal.

    Worst Job Ever

    Service Representative (Former Employee) Centennial, CO

    ProsIt was a job so that I could pay bills

    ConsAsked to do illegal tasks on a regular basis; could only complete job within a 12 hour day by doing things illegally; management would throw under a bus if it could;

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more employees so the Service Reps don't get burnt out. Pay for all hours worked. Reimburse Expenses.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Shameless Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNo checks bounced. I added these words after "bounced" to meet the five word minimum.

    Cons100 percent profit motivated. Patient care and employee concerns are ALMOST non-existent. Good people at centers. Managers outside of the centers are ruthless and I mean ruthless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMyself and others have tried, to make you change in every way ,up to and including resignation. Nothing will help.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    RUN RUN RUN

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosthe pay and all the overtime you want

    Conswork never ends, management is horrible, a few hours of training and you are left to defend for yourself, micro-manage, rule are make up on a day to day bases, asking for help forget about it.

    Advice to Senior Managementnot to have favoritism because you like them, learn the job that you hire people for, and take a management class to help with those who have never managed anything in their entire life.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Center manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWeekly paycheck that you can out on. There are some good people that work at this company. Good life insurance policy.

    ConsUpper management is terrible and they expect way too much from one person. No one stays at this company, unless they are upper management. Center runs with bare minimum staff. Bonus pay is always not given for any excuse they can find. The numbers are manipulated, so you can't get bonus. Do not work for this company unless you are wanting a stepping stone to another company. There is no training for managers. You are thrown in there and expected to figure it out on your own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about what your enters have to say and the issues they are having. Spend some time in the centers and actually listen to the staff. Value your employees. Knowledge is valuable. Training a new person is expensive. Make this a positive place to work. Reward staff when they work hard.

    If someone can do your job for less you might as well kiss your job goodbye.
