    I worked at Acosta part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is good, worked with friendly co-workers, manager was laid back, work early and get off early, fri-sun off

    Cons

    No raises, everybody is basically part time and can't work more than 29 hours, not much room for advancement, they don't pay for gas unless you go over 300 or more miles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make fridays a work day again so your employees can get atleast 35 hrs a week

    Pros

    good starting money. hardly any raises. You could work when you wanted.

    Cons

    hours are not consistant. add and take hours away in a blink of an eye

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employees more than a week to change your schedule. people need to know how many hours a week their going to work to budget their money.

    Pros

    The Corporate Culture is good for the most part. Open door policy is great. Upper management is engaging and approachable. Company is growing, but mostly though acquisition.

    Cons

    Average pay seems to be on the low side for many non-sales positions. The company is definitely experiencing some growing pains. Training is limited for Non LDP candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ideas get passed down too quickly, causing work to be useless and unnecessary.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, Openings around the country if you had to move, good time off, personal days, etc., and plenty of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Training isn't great and salary increases on an annual basis are pretty much nil. People are there for a long time but don't want to change. they want to do their jobs the old way and not increase their knowledge of new ways of doing things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees with raises, even 25 cents a year. give them something
