    I worked at Affiliated Construction Services (ACS) as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Practical application to engineering theory learned in school. Subjects such as heat transfer, statics, and mechanics of material were all reinforced. These subjects were also used in solid modeling of parts for engine testing cells.
    Interns were also used as real employees to complete simple and more advanced projects.
    Company is very good to their employees.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about working for ACS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue using interns to their full potential.

    Pros

    Great Experience. Pay was average. The benefits at the company were very good. The 401K was average as per most companies.

    Cons

    Long hours without many opportunities for advancement. Management did not seem to be very aware of what the client's needs were, It was all about the money.

    25k a year to be supervisor, what a joke

    I worked at Affiliated Construction Services (ACS) full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You can make more money as a call center rep than as a supervisor. Good job if you a college student, live at home with parents, living off government, or if you need friends and want to relive high school. Overtime available for a lot of the year.

    Cons

    The pay changes so much, don't get comfortable and try to live off overtime. They will cut it without notice. Supervisors are stuck between a corrupt upper management and mostly immature adults. The pay as a supervisor is an insult. You have to get a prefect team to break 30k. I made more at entry level at my next job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone says refuses to accept the pay to be a supervisor, you should not take that lightly. Management should see that is someone who knows their value. The turnover rate will always be high if you continue like this.

    Pros

    There really aren't any except a steady paycheck

    Cons

    Overwork, underpay, never pay out bonus and never received a merit increase after stellar review. Also had a 4% cut in pay due to economy across the entire Recruiting team.

    Pros

    long well-paid training, easy work if you understand the material.

    Cons

    mandatory overtime, no work-life balance, no socializing with coworkers because you're constantly on the phone, generally a pretty depressing job.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Affiliated Construction Services (ACS) full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay if you meet the stats. Lots of support in meeting the stats, the team leads are willing to work with you and help you meet your goals.

    Cons

    The pay is based on performance and the better you preform the more you get paid. It sounds great but every 6 months to a year they change the pay schedule and some how you end up making less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you offer top pay ($14 to $18/hr) you will attract top customer service talent without huge turn over rates.

    A complete catastrophe of a work force that includes favoritism, unprofessional management and HR, and disorganization.

    Pros

    In all honesty, there are and still are none from current information of former and current workers.

    Cons

    You don't get treated differently from workers that don't do their part. Promotions are based on favoritism, not based on qualifications or work ethics. Doesn't matter how great of a worker you are and what your stats are, your job is not secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring failing management from other companies and contracts if they have already shown that they do not qualify to run a floor of team members.
