    Pros

    Great people to work with and you pick up great customer service skills

    Cons

    The Management stinks. They are constantly changing policies, but will go back to those same policies when it's convenient for them. They hire tons of people But when that happens so does the firing. I have MS and missed work. They fired me without any consideration and denied me unemployment. They have a huge problem adhering to their "dress code" when it comes to shapely and attractive women. They do not offer any set schedules for the day time and the pay is not that great (11.00 for Apple).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider following and sticking to your ever changing policies. Also maybe get an actual handbook employees can refer to instead of sending out emails.

    Former Employee - Technical Autmotive Consultant in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Minacs Group (USA) as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It was a reputable company until it's founder, Elaine Minacs, passed away. Her kids sold it to Aditya Birla who are in the process of running it into the ground. After that it's become a miserable place. Stay away.

    Cons

    Over 8 years tenure in a call center environment, had established myself as one of the more knowledgeable people there. Reported a co-worker who was literally threatening to beat people up in the parking lot. Was fired as a result. Was never written up in over 8 years, was a "go to" person for many in the center, zero justification for their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep on going to church and keep on feeling great about yourself: I know the truth and so do you. Many other people know what you really did, too. Your reputation will continue to suffer as a result of your actions.

    Pros

    You feel like you're part of a family. Management actually cares, not only about you as the advisor, but for the customers as well (Goes a long way for me). They do things to help keep the morale high. Activities, week long events etc.

    Cons

    Unless you get promoted to a higher position or move to a higher department, your pay can cap out within a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that I can think of.

    Minacs offers a good salary, nice hours and lots of practical work experience. Farmington Hills office decor is very "polished".

    Cons

    Benefit are very expensive (not competitive). Communication from management to workers is non-existent. Toxic co-workers are not dealt with very efficiently. Position titles are not consistent with industry.
