    I worked at Acosta full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedual, are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    No concern for preformance or years with company. All decisions are made in Jacksonville local managers are left out of the loop. Company is expanding too quickly and in doing so has to cut costs, by eliminating full time workers with full benefits, they replace with part time employees who receive no benefits but are expected to work full time. At interview I was told not to expect a raise because it would not happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the local managers manage their own people, they know who performs and who abuses the system. Treat employees as an asset not as a cost to the company. If an employee is a possible lawsuit they remain employed even though they do not do their job year after year. On the other hand if you work hard and effciently and receive awards you are the first to go as you will move on to another job and probably not be a threat.

    I have been working at Acosta full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros left.

    Cons

    Too much good old boy philosophy. Very little team players. Unit manager always wanted to argue. I didn't want to argue all the time. No pay raises or bonuses. Too much micro-management . Company passed all business expenses to it's employees. No room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe if a little more incentives were offered you would be able to retain a quality work force. Why put GPS on your employees(I was making $9.15 an hour) talk about adding insult to injury.
