    An OK place if you need a job, but not a career company.

    Pros

    You can get hired if you know how to use a computer.

    Cons

    Company is going in a bad direction. They are one of the lowest paying companies in town. Their focus is to hire college students who will accept low salaries and then those students figure out that this company is not a great place to work and they can get more money elsewhere, so they leave. There is a high amount of turnover and departments are always reshuffling. They have trouble completing projects on time and will ultimately be the demise of the company. No value is placed on hard work and tenured employees are overlooked for promotions to inexperienced new hires. Don't expect to keep working after you put in your two weeks notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being cheap and hire quality employees.

    Pros

    Great work hours flexibility, work from home potential, great people to work with.

    Cons

    Company is not committed to employees, bonus incentives are a joke, constantly re-organizing, very email based communication, pay increases do not line up with industry or economic standards, no communication to the employees from the top about corporate direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to your employees with pay raises that are worth it, give real bonuses, hire more people to cover the proper amount of work loads. Also have the CEO send out an email at least once a month so we know what is going on with the company and where it is going.

    Current Employee - Route Manager in Indianapolis, IN

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and the Owner seems to care about the people. The job is relatively "easy" once you know what you're doing and you can ask anyone for help if you need it. The benefits work great for me and the insurance is affordable!

    Cons

    You may feel like you're thrown into the mix of things right away, but you'll progressively learn the industry. There doesn't seem to much room for advancement. Somethings don't have set procedures so some people just make up their own way of doing things which causes confusion sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to add a secondary tier of "junior leaders" under the primary managers to help over-see each account. This would help with the confusion and give team members someone to go to with specific questions regarding each account.

    Pros

    Great with employee relations. Allows a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Many things are a work in progress, so not having established processes and procedures can be a frustration at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work toward catching up and building upon what is in place rather than constantly push for new business.

    Pros

    The owner of the company is a great person. Not only was the work place good, but there were numerous activites throughout the year put on by the owner. It felt like a family friendly enviroment.

    Cons

    I did feel that some of the personnel were treated better than others. Also accountability wasn't up held for everyone the same.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn new skills and experience different areas of the company. Co-workers are pretty decent to work with. Its a decent beginner job.

    Cons

    Well below industry average salary and benefits aren't anything special. Limited opportunities for growth. Work consists of cubicle type work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to offer at least competitive salaries to catch the interest of capable talent. Poor pay brings in poor talent.
