    Pros

    Great coworkers and environment. Pay is great as well, in my opinion. Flexible scheduling is always an option. Awesome company.

    Cons

    Seems to take longer than necessary to get login info for rental system, and underscheduling seems to be an issue.

    Pros

    The exposure is great. There are plenty of resources at your disposal and you learn the fundamentals of management. Car privileges!

    Cons

    horrible pay and lack of training process. Limited mobility in other department and little growth opportunity. Horrible bonus structure. In a nutshell, overworked and under compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with your new managers to ensure proper training and success.

    Pros

    There is always something different to deal with. Have to be good at troubleshooting, and working with people. Of all the places I have worked, I get along with my coworkers here the best.

    Cons

    Always expecting employees to work overtime. Very fast paced with little downtime between calls, as it is a call center. Because of this, while there is "scheduled" time for training, it is difficult to get that training done.

    Advice to Management

    It is my understanding that, just in my workcenter, our CIO has been "sitting" on three openings that my supervision wants to advertise for hiring (now needing 4 because someone just recently quit). He needs to approve those so people can get hired and trained as it takes time to train personnel.
