    All the hours you could want, for all the wrong reasons...

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    Pros- Friendly coworkers
    - OK benefits

    Cons- Not necessarily managed well
    - Management & supervisor inefficiencies caused a lot of extra work, but nobody willing to work it for same reason
    - Not willing to work with everyone's schedules
    - Some room for advancement, but you have to fight those already in place for it

    Advice to Senior Management- Consider termination or shuffling of those who are "buddy buddy" with everyone due to tenure, management and associate alike; these attitudes cost time, money, and cause high turnover.
    - Consider doing what's best for operations, not what's going to make you friend(s)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    So far the job is fulfilling, a lot of great colleague's that don't mind being helpful to the "new person".

    CBD (Courtesey Bus Driver) (Current Employee) Romulus, MI

    ProsThere are many great opportunities the company has for their employees, there is room in the company for you to grow and move up.

    ConsJust that the way they have things set up as far as you being a new hire, scheduling is not all that great, most if the time you never know your days off until the new work relief schedule is put up, a day before or last day of your previous schedule. Nothing nice!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind another way to fit new hire's on the schedule without them feeling like they probably won't have a life working with this company.
