    Pros

    The hours are. I currently am full time and get at least 37 hours a week. I also get paid holidays and 2 hour early paid release the day before. The management is also awesome.

    Cons

    Raises are very hard to come by. Seeing your managers in person van be impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your employees to get raises when deserved. You can loose great employees over that.

    I worked at Acosta part-time

    Pros

    I was with Acosta for about 8 years in a couple different positions. I guess the pros would be that I was paid on time, there was no micromanaging, and I rarely saw my boss. I knew what was expected of me each week doing Kompass work and I did it. I also got vacation pay for part time work

    Cons

    Training is not very good, and new employees quit because of lack of direction.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the lower level employees with respect. Show them that they are valued by properly training them and paying them.

    Pros

    Good FT benefits, some jobs you can work at home, growing and successful company. 401K. Pay isn't the best unless you really force the issue.

    Cons

    They Business Manager training program is not focused enough on how it impacts retail. It also doesn’t train BM’s to properly communicate their changes in business to retail and other departments. They're not fully prepared and understand retail as they should. They terminate people based on zip codes and not years with the company. Seniority has no meaning. Team environments are lacking and it's every man/woman for him/her. Do your homework prior to leaving the company so they don't screw you out of vacation as they have others. They don't care about you once you have resigned. Read the fine print. Their systems are becoming antiquated. They pay less for jobs where you should earn more. Raises are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people instead of sending out video's saying how wonderful everything and everyone is. Do something to keep people on board and promote their growth within Acosta. Listen to your employees they have a lot to offer. Do an exit interview. Pay more for good qualified people. Maintain people by performance and seniority.

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefits. Live Well program allows one to earn a little extra money for doing what you normally do (drink water, exercise, preventative doctor appts.)

    Cons

    Continued budget cuts result in more and more work with no extra compensation

    Advice to Management

    need to promote most qualified people to new positions, regardless of age.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, overall pretty good. Decent hours and for the most part good tech to make the work easier.

    Cons

    Mileage program sucks, unrealistic expectations for persons in my postion (core geo rcm), some support from above but sometimes lacking in detailed direction. Support to entice compliance with projects on the store level. Also store level management needs to be in the loop more (Wal-Mart) most rcms are at the whims of the store management and do not seem to care about concerns nor planned projects with hard deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with both lower level people and stop pushing them into a damned if you do damned if you don't position. Communicate with partners that if you want xyz done you need to squeeze not just Acosta but the retailers. And better mileage program would be nice that first and last 20 mile thing needs to go. And how about a raise? Almost two years and nothing.
