    I worked at arvato AG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The plant is a very clean environment and the work is not very difficult. The working conditions are good and employee benefits are good.

    Cons

    The downturn in business due to illegal music, movie, and game downloads had severely hurt this business and has caused numerous layoffs. There is not much future with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for other opportunities to utilize the workforce and assets (equipment and building) to continue a profitable business.

    I have been working at arvato AG part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The management team does a good job in keeping its employees satisfied and they are always there to help. Useful if you wish to practice your communication skills.

    Cons

    As a CSR the job can be extremely repetitive as well as tedious. I don't advise you to join arvato as a CSR if you are looking for a challenging career, but hey an 18k salary is the reason why.

    Pros

    The hiring process moved quickly and there were only 2 stages to the interview process.

    Horrible at responding to emails and phone calls. Also, they have some sort of policy that prevent you from applying for a position again even if you were told you gave a good interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow applicants to apply more than once.
