Advice to ManagementAdvice

For foreign students, the company gets too much advantage from them such as they pay $350 per person /month for housing rental plus $90 a month for transportation. When those young ppl get $8.50 per hour 8hrs a day.

    I worked at The Service Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The employees are great. They want to be a team they are enthusiastic and enjoy their job.
    -Management on site is great tries despite corporate budget restraints.
    -There is a lot of chance for promotion.

    Cons

    -Their is no appreciation for the employees.
    -No checks and balances for upkeep for supplies for the cleaning closets employees.
    -Employees pay for background checks, uniform shirts employer says because of high turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Make a Team Capt. so that one of the employees can be in charge of checking all the closets at the beginning of the shift and stocking them and checking ant the end of shift so the next knows what's missing.
    -If the current electronic system for punching in does not work it needs to be replaced by something that does or needs to be checked /repaired. Double sign ins should not be necessary. It is repetitious and time consuming.
    -Termination letters for exiting employees would make sense and is professional for an organization. They aren't just for your convenience they have other purposes for the employee. I noticed several came back requesting one a couple times a week. Save time and money and do right the first time.

    Former Employee - Lead Driver in Lake Charles, LA

    I worked at The Service Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free transportation. A driver gets paid well. I worked there for 4 years and received one raise, but became a salary employee. Lead Driver can make his own schedule, a good job while in school. Most of upper management was awesome.

    Cons

    High turnover in management, makes it hard for there to be consistent rules. Also, high employee turnover. Very few raises.
