    I worked at Apollo International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, fair treatment, They try to hire vets. All in all, it is a good experience and a good place to work

    Cons

    Some of the low level management need more training. There is a lot of redundancy in some of the daily functions.

    Advice to Management

    I can't say what goes on elsewhere, but the Columbus, Indiana branch needs to have more cross training at the various facilities.

    Pros

    Located next to my house.

    Cons

    Middle management keeps the business running like a train station. Training new employees almost every week. Low wages. Absolutely no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your employees.

    It's an easy job. The pay is good for a college student. Money varies, site to site (11-15) Okay for short term job.

    I have been working at Apollo International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've gotten the hours I've wanted for the most part. I'm at a good site, work is easy, a lot of down time.

    Cons

    Getting stuck when your relief doesn't show up. The union decided to agree to a yearly 30 cent raise, from a 25 cent raise every 6 months. Hard to get recognized and to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more communicative to your employees. There's employees who are here that are willing to move up if you work with them. If employees were taken care of better, the turnover rate wouldn't be so crazy.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for the company is that you get to meet different people and a great job while going to school. You also get to network learning from others.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges working as a supervisor is dealing with people who are not punctual , not doing what they're suppose to do. Another disadvantage is that there are no incentives and room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    my advice to upper management is to get more involve in the environment to make sure thing are operating smooth and be able to correct things in a timely manner.

    Poorly managed company. Never work for them. You can be fired from this company on any given day. Never work for them.

    Pros

    Pays more than similar companies for a job that does not require a degree. The job is easy but unbearably boring.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like a piece of trash. No respect from management. No flexibility with schedule. You must give a one month notice to take a day off or swap a shift with someone. Expect to be fired from the job on any given day.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well. Employee morale is too low at this company because management does not connect with them and make good relationships. Employees quit everyday because they have no loyalty to this company.
