    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay for the work

    Cons

    Calls are generated and completed using a tablet. Whomever creates the calls at Acosta home office would make many careless mistakes that would affect the ability of the TM to answer properly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't terminate good employees who work hard for you, then insult them with an email that advises them to remain professional. I was always professional and went above and beyond the call of duty, only to be cast out for no good reason.

    Pros

    Interesting field to be in. Never had a chance to work in retail until this time. I gained valuable skills working with this company.

    Cons

    Did not like the idea of going to different places of work on a daily basis. Wanted to have some stability for the job.

    Very employee-centric - They understand and support the fact that life comes first.
    good corporate culture - strive to treat everyone fairly; no hostile environments.
    good benefits - Higher than average vacation time, very flexible with when you take vacation and sick time.

    Below-Average Salary - consensus around the office is that everyone is underpaid.
    Disjointed communication between the top and the bottom of the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to stop bleeding trained employees to manufacturers, step up the pay rate comparatively.

    Pros

    Pays well (I started at $11/hr), flexible hours and fairly consistent number of hours, and the work wasn't too difficult. Regional manager was easy enough to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes they would ask unreasonable things or not give enough time to complete a job. They asked me to take on 18 extra hours a week which I couldn't do as a student, and I was terminated the next week, so that felt wrong to me. They also added an additional store to my list which was 30 miles away, without asking if I could do that.

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding of your employees situation. Don't schedule the conference calls on Friday morning.

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions that allows employees to make their own schedule. Free range to implement your own unique work style to best organize and accomplish tasks how one sees its best fit.

    Cons

    Fast pace changing environment with a lot of clients and work to keep up with. Often unclear and questionable direction from upper management. Often times there can be too much inaccurate information which sometimes may cost employees double work.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should listen more to the thoughts, ideas, and concerns of those in the field and try to do a better job of implementing changes and giving clear direction.
