    Pros

    Decent pay, but underpaid for amount of work continuously added to employees as other workers are laid off. Decent Vacation Time Off for amount of years worked. Good to great co-workers.

    Cons

    Very Poor Upper Management. Promotions are only given to Management. Southern Region immorality is a big concern. Need to promote within and look at long time hourly workers. Basically a once great company gone way down in last 5 years. In my opinion, this is due to current president

    Advice to Management

    Put new management in place especially in President's position , one that is qualified for position, a shop Maintenance supervisor is not qualified and shouldn't be considered as qualified.

    Cons

    Underpaid Managers suck and are lazy Don't care about their employees at all Crappy parking lot and always get flat tires They will replace the costumes all day long but won't help w employees. They don't pay us enough to buy half a tire

    Do some work and care about your staff. Don't cheat them w their hourly rages.

    Pros

    The type of work was good. The pay was descent. Enjoyed working with the customers. Generally good co- workers.

    Cons

    Regional Management was horrible. They had no respect for workers over fifty nor long time employees. The Southern Region operated on good ole boy system. If the company needs to save money, close Southern Region Office and let another regional office run Soithern Region.

    Advice to Management

    Chicago clean New Albany Ms Regional office and hire new from outside of company.

    Pros

    Overall, people were good and open to change. There are a few good gems. There are offices with great localized culture.

    Cons

    Every site and manager had a different method of approach. At times drastically different than the overall culture of the company. There was no continuity of a single management culture or actual management training program that would allow employees to move up from within and help current managers better manage and lead their team.

    Advice to Management

    Create a management training program. Cultivate employees and terminate bitter managers unable to learn or change for the better of the company.
