    Was my favorite job if I didn't have to relocate, I think I would still be there.

    I worked at MAXIMUS

    Pros

    The pay was really good for me at the time (4 years ago). I liked that we had the option to have McAlister's for lunch since the location of the building was so remote. (Have no idea if they still cater today). We did not have to share desks/work spaces like other call centers that I know. At Maximus they
    had separate computer rooms that the employees could use at break or lunch for personal use if so desired. There was also a room that we (employees) could use to rest/lie down in if we weren't feeling well.
    The trainers made learning fun. Everyone on the floor was great.

    Cons

    I worked there 4 years ago so it is really difficult for me remember the challenges. I know there were some, there are with any job. It was actually my favorite job and I wish I didn't have to relocate.

    Pros

    Great Management who actually listens along with very good training programs.

    Cons

    $15 per hour for a supervisor is absurd. I worked for 9 months until I got fed up with the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your supervisors and upper management what they are worth.
