Former Employee - Field Technician in San Antonio, TX

I worked at Coinstar as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Good Pay
Decent benefits
Company Car
All in all its just a regular job, nothing so spectacular to speak of that it needs to be said here. About the most exciting thing is a Company car... OH and a 4G LTE smart phone :)

Cons

Management has no idea what is going on half the time, and they are quick to blame you for every bad decision they make. 0% supervision until it comes time for numbers and reports at the end of the month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring at the top and concentrate on hiring and developing quality workers.

    Current Employee - Tax Accountant in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Current Employee - Tax Accountant in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    I have been working at Coinstar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good along with the movie rentals to the employees. The food eveyone brings in is also quite good...

    Cons

    Micro-management, terrible training, lack of direction from Management Team in the tax department. Unprofessional and juvenille behavior in the tax management team. The gossip and constant loud laughing is quite unprofessional and very distracting. Too many senseless meetings!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Desperate need for a complete overhaul of the tax management team in Oakbrook, IL.

    Current Employee - Program Manager in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    I have been working at Coinstar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Solid benefit package
    Opportunities to advance
    You get to work with bright people
    Lots of fun company events, such as going out for private movie screenings at a local cinema
    Nice office space to work in

    Cons

    You need to be responsible for your own career, as the company is not strong on helping you to identify a career path
    A little heavy on 'Directors' in the organization: we need fewer bosses and more workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time talking with your employees and letting them know that you recognize their efforts and care about them as employees and as people
