Keep Jobs in America

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Plano, TX

ProsVariety of hours available. Met some life long friends there.

ConsLow pay, management team is inexperienced, laid off to send my job over seas, micro-managers, people are treated as numbers not humans.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher positions should work their way up not just get a position bc of seniority. Many of upper management didn't know how to do the job they were supervising for. Don't micro-manage, trust the people that have been hired.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
