    DSC has been good to me

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsNo layoffs.
    Opportunity for advancement.
    DSC really cares about hourly employees. Many 2nd chances to follow policies and rules.

    ConsNot staffed adequately requiring too many hours of mandated OT.
    Low starting wage causing turn over after the inexperienced new hires get a few months experience under their belt and can apply for higher paying jobs requiring experience.
    Difficult environment to manage in. Too many 2nd chances for hourly EE's big mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetain managers as hard as you try to retain hourly employee's.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company!!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Des Plaines, IL

    ProsManagement is very accessible and interested in the employees. There are many opportunities to get involved across the organization and gain experience. Benefits are great.

    ConsNot many - Smaller company, so the headquarters isn't a big fancy space.

    Forklift Operator

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are no pros to this company. Worst comPany ever!

    ConsNot family friendly at all! Management treats employees like children. Especially in Coppell, Texas. They hire a lot of temps and have a lot of turnover. Attendance policy is too strict. Management won't work with you if your sick.

    Very disinterested in their employees"

    Forklift Operator (Former Employee)
    Toledo, OH

    ProsThe pay is decent enough, and a large number of temp employees will end up getting hired on.

    ConsThere is no training to speak of. Employees are thrown into the job with no explanation as to their job duties, and then punished for not knowing what to do. Bonuses are based on individual quotas, so none of the other employees are willing to help since it will take a piece of their pie. Also a lot of mandatory overtime.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No employee engagement or development

    (Former Employee)
    Des Plaines, IL

    ProsCompensation in terms of pay and benefits is great!

    ConsThere is NO employee development or growth. They have very little investment in the long term health of an employee's career. I was given VERY little direction or coaching in my positions. You wonder aimlessly and make rookie mistakes because company culture does not dictate that leadership be leaders.
    While there are "teams" and departments within the organization, no one acts like they are on a team. No one is held accountable for their actions! Therefore, DSC has created an organization of laziness, which produces low quality work. I was continually frustrated, when trying to get things done.
    While I received promotions and raises, they are not based on merit, necessarily. Its based on who you know, and how much you "hassle" HR and VPs for promotions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some vested interest in employees. Provide career development. Don't be so scared of your employees, and hold people accountable for your actions. The valuable employees will stick around, and those looking for a free ride will go somewhere else. Your departments will be stronger and perform much better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
