    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment. Once you are hired there is good job security if you like working for peanuts.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, well below average pay for tasks required. Have to work multiple different jobs as a customer service rep and the pay does not reflect all the different work required. The management is very poor. There is no room for advancement. Very minimal raises, no value of the employees in the customer service department. They have quarterly bonuses for sales which are extremely hard to achieve for the average rep. You have to be buddy buddy with the supervisors so more order calls are routed to you. They have an "order entry" department of 3 people who place majority of orders and receive large bonuses every quarter, their goal to achieve is the same as others who don't place thousands of orders a week and actually have to do their customer service job. They allow the order entry department to make thousands upon thousands of dollars in mistakes with no repercussion just keep handing out the large bonuses. They exported a lot of jobs to China and Mexico. The operating system is completely outdated, has been around since the 80s. Being a CSR at Amsterdam Printing and for Taylor corporation you are not valued just easily replaced by the next person willing to take the meager pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people based on experience. Stop wasting millions in terrible advertising. Update the out dated systems. Eliminate the "order entry" department make them earn it like every other csr rep. Hire better management personnel.

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to get a good sales territory you'll make great money...

    Cons

    Leadership is awful... One of the leadership supervisors has an M.B.A. in business & tries to teach to sell going by books...Really & the Telesales Manager worked door-to-door Selling knives & Uniforms & thinks he is a guru of promotional products! He's a joke at best,& will make your life a living nightmare if you don't pretend to side with him...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming the department sales on your employees & look at the economy!

    Pros

    You literally may have to do something illegal to get fired...OR get on the bad side of of the wrong manager or executive. Job security is almost a given.

    Cons

    Pay is pathetic. Office equipment is outdated before it is even issued. It's basically run by a clique who survives by speaking in circles (while in series of meetings), rides on the fact that much of the company is autonomous anyway, and covers their own tracks in anyway possible. I guess many have been terminated or have otherwise left, so that would be an improvement. Many positions are held by horrendously under-qualified people. Several departments are plagued by workers who literally stare at walls and collect paychecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe they should pay people real wages and actually screen people for qualifications (and then hold them to task of doing their job). It shouldn't take years to implement simple changes and fixes. People who can not do their job SHOULD be fired. If a young person out of college needs a year or two of experience, it could be much worse, but there are no real career opportunities for ambitious people.

    working environment is relatively friendly. you don't get overtime a lot. some managers are very understanding and encouraging but you got to be in the right department

    Cons

    benefit packages are below average. got underpaid and no raise for years (only if you call a 2% a raise). don't see any potential career growth.
