    Pros

    Flexible Hours, able to work at your own pace and meet lots of new people...store owners franchise-ees etc.

    Cons

    The pay is very poor for all the work the sales reps do. The room for growth is very limited also.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees better and the turnover rate won't be as great as it is for this position.

    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.

    Pros

    Full time employees who work a minimum of 37.5 hours per week receive vacation, limited sick time,personal time and holiday pay. Thank-you for the experience.

    Cons

    NO RAISES, LAUGHABLE EMPLOYEE REVIEWS, Upper management completely out for themselves, with limited thoughts of how to ACTUALLY improve the status of the company, Can and Will be fired or taken to part-time over a 10 minute conference call.

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to your employees who work hard for you. Give ACTUAL TRUE REVIEWS, and at least some type of yearly raise. What you made 5 years ago, is no longer an "ADVANTAGE". If you tell employees they cannot work for other companies, then PAY them enough so they don't have to have 1,2,3,4 part time jobs to pay their rent, etc. Paying your " Unit Managers" barely a living wage, yet EXPECTING them to work 50,60,70,80 hours a week IS ABSURD. Most of them make less than the minimum hourly wage. I CONSTANTLY CRACK UP when I read these reviews, and people complain about the pay, lack of consideration for years worked, poor training, low quality reviews, etc., yet STILL give the CEO, Company, HIGH ratings. What's up with that? Who do you think is making the decisions? Your fellow low employees? Perhaps ACOSTA needs to reevaluate their "CULTURE and VALUES".....

    Pros

    As long as you are doing your job, you are left alone to work. Technology tools are up to date.

    Cons

    I have had 3 supervisors within a 1 year period and all are psychotic. I don't know where they matriculate from but it seems to be the bottom of the barrel, very abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at UM's here in Gilbert,( female ), who are write up happy and contradict themselves. Some are on a with hunt. A GOOD UM is supposed to lift you up, not tear you down. Maura Nelson in San Antonio, TX is an excellent model!! She is a REAL MANAGER!
