    I have been working at United Site Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are hardworking and nice. Generous overtime if you are an hourly employee. Flexible hours. Free pizza every two weeks. Nice Christmas Party.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate amongst employees. No adequate training for your job. Co-workers too busy to train anyone. HR is inadequate. Impossible workload on an archaic operating system. Long hours for salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the turnover of self-trained and valuable employees. Respect goes a long way. Pay your vendors on a timely basis and fix the Accounts Payable Department that has been in turmoil for the past 3 years due to bad management. Support your yard managers with training. Focus inwards for awhile and fix internal problems before gobbling up more Mom and Pop businesses. Your lust to be the giant in the port a potty business might be your down fall. Update your archaic operating system for better reporting. Get rid of Field Operating Services (FOS) and replace with a professional purchasing department run by purchasing professionals.

    I worked at United Site Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice offices, lower co-workers are very nice people, free pizza, free coffee, free soda. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management overworks you then uses it against you that you are not performing up to par. Management does not support workers even though they do their best to appear to. Co-workers are always working to cover themselves to stay out of trouble. Moral is not good amongst workers and causes underlying tension in the office. Sad because there are so many nice people. There is a definite mistrust going on between Management and their staff. You better put on a happy face and learn how to play politics to work here, or you will be out the door!

    Advice to Management

    Get more in touch will your people and stop using your poor staffing levels against present workers. They work SUPER hard and it's clearly not appreciated. Management holds false faces just to get along. They act like monkey's, just so they don't get into trouble either.

    I worked at United Site Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office, free pizza once a month, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Way overworked and they don't care if you can get your job done. Not honest with employees performance then use it against you. Management is not supportive. They find ways to fire you. Complaints are never handled and you will be in a loosing battle trying to handle conflicts. If you are a 'yes' person you will surely do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more in touch with their employees and understand the work load they expect to happen and support them, knowing it cannot all get done in a timely and efficient manor because the staffing is too low for the size of the company.

    Pros

    Compensation and PTO is adequate, company is making an effort to recognize employees, technology driven, good hands-on experience, colleagues are friendly to work with

    Cons

    Not staffed correctly for the amount of work that is expected by upper management, no employee loyalty, extremely low morale, too much talk of the company not having money and too much transparency about transforming the company

    Advice to Management

    Plan on staffing more people if you want quality employees to stay with the company, make an effort to support career paths. Thinking things through will not prolong projects and cause people to work overnight to make up for your shortcomings.
