    I have been working at Career Connections, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a contractor for a major IT/ hardware firm, I was able to wear casual clothes (except shorts, cutoffs, t-shirts, flip-flops. I don't work nights, I don't take phone calls.

    Cons

    The client company decided to furlough people for a week or two, and have them work 1 or 2 days during the period. If they had told me before hiring me, I might have still taken the job, but I am shocked and financially hurt by an indeterminate amount of furlough time, which seems to be a 4th quarter capricious decision. Hence, I am looking for other work just in case. It's also unfair that they cut people down to minimum wage for the last paycheck based on their training costs whether they fire you or you quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell people at time of hire of possible furlough. Don't rip people off on their last pay check.

    Pros

    For call center reps looking for a quick paycheck, these guys will hire anyone.

    Cons

    Extremely disorganized, tons of nepotism, leadership lacks integrity. This company makes its money off of being predatory towards employees. The less they can give you in incentives, benefits, wages etc. the more they make. The CEO is one of the most rude and racist people I have ever met and refers to the employees as if they are beneath him behind closed doors. Leadership here will repeatedly tell you want you want to hear but never deliver and when called out they just don't care. Terrible place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some integrity and treat your employees like people, not cattle.

    I have been working at Career Connections, Inc. as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Hired immediately without proper interview.
    - Decent to good pay rate.
    - Full-time work.

    Cons

    - Staffing agency.
    - They lie to you about your job contract. I was told this was a permanent job just to find out that it was a temp to hire after all the paper works were done.
    - Managers don't even come see you. They just send you to your work destination and only call if there is trouble.
    - Expensive benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth when hiring people.

    I have been working at Career Connections, Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent enough insurance if you can afford to pay for it
    Vacation hours can be accrued after your first year
    Fast paced environment
    Opportunities for learning new things
    Possibility of advancement

    Cons

    No offer of sick time or holiday pay
    Advancement is tricky at best
    Recognition in this job is practically unheard of
    Raises are not offered and can usually only be obtained if you are willing to fight for it
    Base rate may be better than minimum wage, but not by much
    Hard work is used, abused, and unrewarded
    Think of being in High School again or having not ever left

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer your workers more incentives for jobs well done. The supervisors should be more organized, more approachable, and acknowledge those that do a job well done. Offer raises more often. If you want to stop the high turn over rate then maybe you should improve the condition of the working environment and the morale of the workers that strive so hard every day to complete all the obstacles thrown at them for less pay than they deserve for all that's required.

    Pros

    Very Laid back, Don't bother you about anything, Works with you on scheduling if you speak with the proper parties.

    Cons

    Too Relaxed, High school environment, management is very unorganized, benefits are too expensive for the rate of pay, pay is much lower than other comparable jobs with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least Try to present as a united front, and not show favoritism towards individual employees.

    I have been working at Career Connections, Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is good, that's about it. Other than needing 20 characters in this section, I can't think of anything else to put here

    Cons

    Management is lacking in organization skills to provide a stable working experience. Pay is never right or on time and is a hassle to even get corrected. I was told one schedule before my first day and came in to see a completely different one listed. On top of that they couldn't even tell me which one to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire more than you can handle which looks like you can't handle much. Be organized, make your employees think they are valued because not a single one thinks they are.

    Pros

    Able to win prizes as long as you put in the effort. As well as most of the people working there are good people

    Cons

    Dishonest management, accuse an employee of committing an act then unable or unwilling to provide proof of the act. Instead just firing without even a warning .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Abide by your own policies. If you are going to accuse an employee of violating company policy then provide proof of the act. Give the employee a chance to correct their mistake. CCI lost an outstanding employee and a very hard worker. One of the best advisor CCI in Anderson had on the payroll for the Concentrix account.
