    Pros

    The main thing I liked was the degree of flexibility. You work based on your own schedule and needs since there is no set workweek.

    Cons

    There are few cons I have. The main one is the pay is not enough. Also, at large events, our employee lines are ridiculously long. It would have been helpful to have three or four employees signing employees in and out.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay in larger increments for staff who do a great job and regularly receive compliments from patrons.

    Pros

    A couple benefits to working with CSC are 1. Can choose when to work 2. The job is pretty easy 3. Work concerts, soccer games, festivas etc 4. Get your guard card and you get a $1 increase in pay, doesn't sound much but its worth it. 5. The company helps you get your guard card, you can work to pay it off 6. Hire all ages, heights, weights etc

    Cons

    Some cons are 1. The job is permant part-time (no benefits) 2. If you don't drive you might not get a lot of work 3. People expect you to know everything and will ask you every question they can, you won't know all the answers 4. You're standing for long periods of time...buy good shoes (all black)

    Advice to Management

    No real advice for management. They do the best they can and that's appreciated.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Contemporary Services Corporation part-time

    Pros

    mostly good people, family like atmosphere,I'd say 90% good supervisors, estimated time out is usually accurate with some wriggle room left over (unless it's a sporting event that goes into over time), get to choose schedule I like that they follow through with accommodating employees with physical disabilities.

    Cons

    You do stand the whole time in most positions, but your told that from the beginning. 15 or 20 minutes is not enough time to eat especially at Nissan Stadium if your posted far away from where they keep the bags or stand in line to get food. There is one person that always gives faulty information in the scheduling office, not sure who but something he tells you will almost always be wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all the supervisors follow the 30 min meal break on longer days, because some of them don't, and consider a 30min meal break for larger venues that make 15 hard. Find out who the person is that's bad at giving info in scheduling and have him do something else.

    Pros

    You get to work at various sporting events and concerts.

    Cons

    Hmmm am I allowed to use profanity? I have only been with this company 3 months and I'm already disgusted. I showed them my 40 hour guard card certificate and they STILL have me at $9.50 after 3 months! I have emailed them countless times and they say they will fix it, but they dont. I called and left so many messages but never got a single call back. If I was to not show up at my post, they would be calling me though! They make all kinds of promises at orientation just to get you in. Bait and switch. Unbelievable this company has been I business this long. They do not know how to treat their employees

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate and get off your high horse.
