I have been working at AcostaPros
Great place to work. Great benefits, mostly friendly coworkers and management. Decent beginning pay. Make your own schedule (with boundaries) and no manager breathing down your back constantly. You work primarily by yourself to accomplish the tasks given.
Taking charge of your own route, representing huge manufacturers and seeing the result of your work are gratifying. The health benefits are amazing and some of the perk programs are worth aiming for.Cons
You use your own vehicle and the compensation is minimal and confusing to figure out.
Wondering when your raise is coming? Don't expect one... ever.
Multiple people doing hiring and firing. Nearly impossible to move up to a higher paying position due to lack of follow up and organization.
The CEO only cares about upper-level management while positively saying the people on bottom need to increase their efforts (without a pay raise?!)
Company is getting bloated by acquiring too many companies and not consolidating enough. Lack of integrity and business form to mainstream the business.
Absolutely no value for tenured workers.
Focus on culture is only for office staff, not the foot soldiers doing the work in-store. Culture... what Acosta "culture"?Advice to ManagementAdvice
Go back to your base and work on the talent in low level positions.
Increase training to build skills and make workers more effective. UTILIZE THE TALENT YOU HAVE!!
Make it worth-while to stay and give your people raises, since you have a decent workforce. Maybe acquire fewer companies and build future business from current talent pool.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
