    Pros

    Members and coworkers are the best!

    Cons

    Minimum wage or barely better. Difficult to maintain a schedule because the hours you are assigned are not guaranteed and you are laid off on a week by week basis if meeting attendance drops. Company constantly hires and takes away experienced workers' shifts to make room for the newest hires, who often leave the company once they realize the low pay and inconventent hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your experienced employees. We offer the best service to members. Evaluate employees' performance and reward those who really care about their jobs and company.

    Pros

    Helping people towards a healthier lifestyle

    Cons

    The new program for 2014 has made their approach in the first 4 weeks simpler, but neglected to recognize those who have contributed through out 2013... the reason???? A dollar an hour more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jim Chambers: Your service providers work hard and are your bread and butter. Ignoring the fact that these people need to be recognized on a local level each year is your first big mistake.
