  1.  

    They are extremely disorganized and it is extremely difficult to get straight answers from them.

    Pros

    The hiring process was quick.

    Cons

    Hard to get in touch with.
    Don't return calls.
    The time sheet system is extremely slow and difficult to use.
    No accrued paid time off - no paid time off at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return calls in a timely manner.
    Have better knowledge of the projects you are assigning people to so that when they ask questions and have concerns you can better serve them.
    Take better care of your employees.

    I have been working at 1st Choice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you kiss the executive management (or her 21 year old daughter's!) asses, you may not be publicly berated and humiliated. Hello incompetent other Account Managers that can't manage accounts, over worked accounting, front desk & hr departments! When you're not pulled into 4 hour a day meetings that stay on topic for ten minutes, then wander to how much the CEO & VP love to shop & buy LV (but can't afford to pay you a competitive wage in the market) you may be able to get some work done. Maybe. But you'll probably just be insulted and told that you don't manage your time wisely. How dare you not be able to fit 10 hours of work into a 5 hour day!

    Cons

    1 week of paid vacation IF you've clocked the right amount of years, corporate office sucks, temps are shuffled around and aren't valued as people, just commodity. Ex management team literally teased less attractive employees/candidates while they were in the other room. Ghetto. CEOs walking around with no shoes on. Bipolar old women who just want to gossip about their departments and cause strife. No wonder the business income in tanking, the clients are bipassing the lack of professionalism and going to places like Accenture and Manpower. This place is riding on good performance from 2009. Disgusting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either pay employees a fair wage and a smidge of self respect or sell the business. Seriously. Go to Manpower, Accenture. Any place but here. A benefits package that actually benefits employees would be nice too.
