    Pros

    I worked at the Cashier's Office for a brief period of time and loved every moment of it. The staff was very nice and understanding and I received a great deal of support from the managers. This is a great place to work and also the university has great benefits!

    Cons

    One of the only cons is the commute to the location in downtown.

    Pros

    I have gotten so much support from my managers at this company. They have always done their best, even in lean times - to keep me employed. Additionally, they have have always worked with my school schedule, even before I started attending nursing school. I was recently placed in my dream job - an administrative assistant in a hospital. The schedule is flexible and works perfect with my other obligations. Helpmates Staffing Services is the way to go.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I miss one of my old managers. However, the transition has been seamless and I feel confident they will always do their best to keep me gainfully employed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!

    Pros

    when i first started, there seemed to be a positive work environment . but i was mistaken. this is not a happy place to be employed.

    Cons

    compensation is unclearn
    training is okay, but the systems used are old
    company culture is hostile.. i would not want to work there again

    Advice to Management

    create a report to show commission and sales
    speak positively around the office about employees you do not like.
    The General Manager talks about employees to other employees, and thinks they do not talk..

    This is not a good employer

    Pros

    Great Co-workers and smaller offices so you get to know everyone fairly quickly. Quarterly meeting with cash bonuses.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, you are expected to work Monday-Friday 10+hours, eat lunch at your desk and never take a break. Often worked 12+hours and Saturdays as well. Management expected more and continuously pushed for higher numbers, more hours etc. without giving the tools or assistance to complete tasks.

    Bought most of my office supplies while working there without being reimbursed.

    Also there is, as previously stated, a lot of favoritism, you can be a top performer and management will still reprimand and yell. You can also be a poor performer and get fawned over.

    The management needs better training and there is no room for the growth that they claim. Also, EVERYONE is on a different pay scale doing the same job and new employees are often paid more than the seasoned employees. Bonuses can not be relied on and raises are rarely given.

    Advice to Management

    Better training all around especially at the branch manager levels and stop micro-managing. Provide the team the tools and assistance they need to do their job well and pay the ones who have been loyal decent pay.
