    Pros

    at cost prices for employees. company pays half for massage.
    on site fitness center so you don't get credit if you have your own membership elsewhere.
    flexible with school schedule, if your a student
    If you want to work in customer service, this is probably the least stressful place to work for.
    Yearly Bonus

    Cons

    Wages have actually improved a lot after I left so I can't say there is a problem with wages. as with any customer service role, your job is to be on the phone, not talking to your neighbor so you don't really get to meet people who don't sit close to you. but like I said, thats with any CSR role.

    Pros

    Freebies (outdated or ready to expire product) pretty much Monday thru Friday set hours. They have a picnic in the summer at the facility and a Christmas party at the Hilton in Harrisburg which is nice.

    Cons

    Favoritism, the boss snubs everyone. Lots of standing and walking. The more you work the more they want from you. Unless your one of those favorites. Then you just have to show up.They allow you to get 18 "points" before you get fired, but in my opinion if you get points in your first 90 days your not worth keeping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally, give raises on performance not on weather they show up or not.

    Pros

    Exercise room, Health assements, Great snack area, and nice people.

    Cons

    If you work in customer service you have to work every other weekend. It seems that they promote males a lot faster than the females.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a hard line between upper management and regular employees. It seems management really doesn't reach out to those who are not management. My manager barely talks to me.

    Pros

    Discount on products. Almost always have rewards and games going on in call center, help make it fun. Willingness to work around school schedule since there are many college students in the area. 24 Hr gym with shower. Bonus at year end.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to move to other departments even if you have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wages need to be more competetive if you want to keep good employees from leaving the company. Don't understand how profits can increase, yet yearly bonus do not reflect this?
