Pros

Benefits, benefits, benefits! Medical, dental, family, etc. Great 401K plan!

Cons

No OT! If you miss your budget, you're likely to be fired, so employees are constantly worried about the possibilty of termination!

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

    Pros

    I made so much money working for fams. That is the #1 thing I miss, the next would be the atmosphere. Such an energetic, fun place I looked forward to going to each day. my husbands job transferred us out of state, so unfortunately, I had to resign. I accepted a job in our new location doing collections and it doesn't come close to fams in terms of earning potential or working environment!

    Cons

    the attendance policy was kind of strict, but if you are reliable and can show up to work on time, you won't have any problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't ever leave!!!!!! the grass is not greener and you have no idea how good you have it at fams!

    I worked at FAMS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interview process was warm, and appeared genial and legitimate. Human Resources Recruiter was friendly and hired on the spot. The full week of training was secluded from the rest of the company, and involved 10 other new-hires. Was a fun atmosphere...unfortunately that was the end of the honeymoon.

    Cons

    The call center floor was an absolute nightmare, from the first day we were allowed to go out until the day I quite. Employees receive 2 scheduled bathroom breaks that are 5 minutes each. For clocking in and out for lunch and end of day, employees are herded like cattle and told that if they go over their allotted 40 hrs per week, they will be penalized for stealing from the company. Unit managers often yelled at rows of cubicles to keep employees in check. And the EMPLOYEES...worst group of people I've ever worked with. Females wore 10 in stilettos, weave to their ankles, huge hoop earrings, and see-thru shirts (it was as if they had just finished a shift at Magic Mike's). The men wore sagging pants, had huge earrings in their ears, smelled of weed, and cussed like sailors. And these were men and women from SEVERAL ethnicities. The most ghetto-fabulous establishment I've ever seen, like they recruited from a prison exchange program.
