    I worked at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good starting pay and managers are fair.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are the scheduled break times and early starts due to 2 shifts in processing dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a suuestion box.

    Pros

    The hours are great if you're a morning person.

    Cons

    The company itself is so disorganized it's not even funny... They only pay you $10.00 an hour to be treated like an inmate at a jail. The warehouse is very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter... You can find better...

    I worked at Guaranteed Returns

    Pros

    Steady schedule, decent pay above minimum wage, opportunity to learn, if you do your job and mind your business it's a pretty good place to work.

    Cons

    Raises not always reflective of effort, coworkers gossip and can be very catty, distinct culture difference between warehouse and office reduces morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut corners, put the employees first and don't treat people like prisoners. You can be secure without being irrational and learn to trust your employees and reward them for honesty. Also, you have to be honest to expect honesty

    I have been working at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I believe the company is moving in a new direction to include better organization, updates of website, technology and communication, but they are not there yet.

    Cons

    Outside positions are 1099, so no benefits of health insurance, 401 K...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear with expectations and provide support for those initiatives.

    I worked at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hours on the day shift; my immediate supervisors and manager. A regular paycheck (when Payroll didn't screw up) and free coffee on breaks (when machine was maintained). Made some good friends.

    Cons

    Front-office and warehouse cultures are too different (country club vs. jail). Surveillance and multiple daily searches make for a paranoid, miserable atmosphere. My coworkers congratulated me when I was leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat warehouse workers with respect; improve pay; increase opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The warehouse day shift schedule (7-3) and a steady paycheck.

    Cons

    Very strict work conditions, extremely few opportunities for advancement. A complete disconnect between the warehouse and front office. Great relative discrepancies in pay for similar job functions. Low rate of pay, considering the specificity of procedures and possible exposure to medical and hazardous substances. Widespread low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better rates of pay and more thorough training, More opportunities for cross-departmental and upward mobility.
