    Pros

    Always something to do. Never bored. Time flies.

    Cons

    There is not $ help for car expense and the gas commute mileage amount increased to 60 miles or 40 min. Each way that really hurts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to increase hourly wage to help with the rise of living costs. Use of employee car maintainable costs reimbursement . Plan annual Company picnics or Christmas parties. Show us that we matter to the company and give us something to look forward to.

    Pros

    Great position if you like fast paced non stop work

    Cons

    Does not listen to ideas from experienced employees and will take your idea and credit it to others right in your face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is turning into a churn and burn environment for employees. The new call center boiler room environment that has been established should be reviewed. Lost many well qualified associates and "laid off" even more without a care. Mgmt does not have empathy . Perception is reality for associates

    They're aren't really any challages to to the job quite simple and understanding once you get the feel of it.

    Pros

    The one good thing about this company is that they do hire great people...they under-value them, over-work them, and treat them like numbers (and of course make the fake show of employee recognition, which is almost an insult considering how you are treated otherwise), but if anything came out of the miserable experience of working there, it was having great co-workers (a majority that has also moved on to happier careers elsewhere).

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced and lacking any type of structure. Expectations are unrealistic and employee morale has been at a steady decline behind the scenes for some time. Unprofessional, impersonal, and just plain sad as they do have (had) great people at their disposal that really could have made a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How you treat your employees is the foundation of your business. Hire people that are qualified to manage a team and instill confidence, work on restoring the faith in the company and stop being fake. Your employees will appreciate you more and maybe for once be proud to work for this company.

    Pros

    Steady work, steady pay, some good peers and decent training.

    Cons

    Most managers are positive, but theirs always one in the bunch who has it out for you. Your just a number and replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hired the employees for a reason, because they are qualified. Managers who over see teams, need to stop being so nit-picking. I worked there for 5 years until one woman became my manager and all of the sudden nothing I could do was right. Wasn't me who needed to be retrained, it was her!

    Pros

    Long lasting business, able to adapt to changes in market. Well thought out benefits plan, and flexible time off for both vacation and illness.

    Cons

    Stagnation. I could end it in that one word. The only reason I lasted at the company as long as I did was a shifted whole departments. There is little to no upward/sideways movement in the company. They hire for the position and nothing more. Aspire for management? Hope to hell you hired into it, otherwise good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously consider opening opportunities for advancement for those that show the ambition. I left after 10 years because I finally realized I was going to be better off advancing my life elsewhere.

    Pros

    Growth, upward movement, this company is growing, growing, growing and the if you are willing to grab the golden ring, your future is secure.

    Cons

    Constant growth, means constant change. Need to be willing to change direction at a moments notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth, stop hording equity and give others a chance to be vested in the Company. The more your assoicates feel they are vested, the more dedicated to ASM they will be!
