Reasonable benefits, but not enough to counter the low pay vs. work overload.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsLots of locations (Texas), very nice/extensive medical benefits, 2 weeks paid vacation after first year, 3 weeks after second year

ConsExtremely low pay for the amount of work needing to be done. CSRs have entirely way too much to do in an 8 hour period. Gloves are not provided, even when cleaning extremely unsanitary areas such as the bathroom, or changing the trash at the stations. My location is constantly understaffed because of the heavy workload combined with the low pay. Hours are restricted. Give more than one manager per location; the managers are more overworked than the subordinate CSRs.

Advice to Senior ManagementOne of your slogans is that "Our employees are our #1 asset." Keep true to this by not skimping out on employee pay; the amount of physical labor that is done in 8 hours is worth way more than 7.30/hr.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
