    I worked at Contemporary Services Corporation part-time

    Pros

    A solid extra-job if you are available to work weekends and nights. Very easy to get the job. Allows you the opportunity to work with people from many different cultures.

    Cons

    Very low pay for tedious labor. You have to drive to venues and end up spending two hours of your near-minimum wage on gas and lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none.

    I worked at Contemporary Services Corporation part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good experience working with public
    the lunch they will offer to take out your check if u forget your money
    Different concerts

    Cons

    Not Steady
    Lazy co-workers
    Rude Supervisors
    Don't know who your direct supervisor is
    Low Pay!
    You have to call them for work and it usually is slim
    Too much driving around
    If you want to work events or concert then apply for a venue not this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to add scheduling for your staff.

    Pros

    Free admission to sporting events and concerts. Fairly easy to work.

    Cons

    No organization at all. You never know who your direct supervisor will be, when you come in. Very low pay. Especially for all the responsibility you have. Had to call HR to find out that I had been fired, for not working enough events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave Atlanta!

    I worked at Contemporary Services Corporation part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You are able to see allot of great concerts and sporting events along with some behind the scenes situations. Every event is different so it never gets boring with the different patrons and staff. Worked for CSC from high school and ended after 15 years and had some great times with different coworkers over the years in the South Fl branch. It was my fund job after I started working FT elsewhere. I wish they had an office in where I live now in Raleigh NC, I miss the event life.

    Cons

    Long hours and sometimes you are our all day in the sun or rain. But you make your own schedule and for the most part work when you want to. Pay is not great but you do get to somewhat enjoy a free event and interact with celebrities and starts depending on where you are posted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was allot of turn over at the management level but overall for the most part management did a good job trying to keep everyone happy.
