    Pros

    They are a fast moving company.

    Cons

    They are not as people oriented as they let on to be. They terminate people that file L&I claims, and don't give valid reasons for termination. They do not pay per the standards of the industry. There is little or no chance for advancement with the departments.

    Pros

    Technology is frequently updated and reliable.

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay for the Branch Manager position. Constant change of direction and terrible communication from Corporate. Constantly expecting more but not willing to pay for it. Brand reputation is so bad it's difficult to sell. You can dress it up but it's never going to be anything but Labor Ready. Do not disclose the amount of travel required for Branch Managers, many out of state trips "required".

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't matter sadly.

    Pros

    Ok benefits, good size IT hardware infrastructure.

    Cons

    The IT department is all about meetings, and end up doing nothing in the end. They don't trust their own employees, and seniority means nothing here. They don't even care when their long tenured great employees quit. Management thinks there is a line of people out the door just waiting to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Leave, go away starting with the VP of IT. This person is completely worthless to the company, and that uselessness works it's way down to the directors and managers below.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and great sales team within branch. That is about all I can think of at this point. Other than after a year you can get partial tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very unstable management, tendency to be two faced to employees. Management has a good Ole boy mind set and if you don't you are shoved out. Take credit for others ideas and work.

    Advice to Management

    Would recommend keeping a closer eye on branch managers and workers. So that they sre performing as needed not just what is being portrayed.

    My 1st year and a half were excellent...Then, upper management changed and the morale went out the window.

    Pros

    My original DM was amazing. He supported us and made sure we were all successful.

    Cons

    After the change in upper management, the company will never be the same. "Do more with less", "save your way to success" & "I understand you'll have to take a pay cut...." all became common conversations. The corporate neglect to the evident problem at hand is causing the company to emplode. I have never seen a district have so much turn over- everyone quit! Enough is enough, someone needs to step in and recognize the problem or the shareholders are in for a huge disappointment!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at you newest upper management team. Look at the trends on the district and recognize when things began to go down hill...there is your answer.

    Pros

    Sales personnel have huge potential for high income if the operations side of the business is performing well

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes the entire time I've worked here which has created a low morale and a ton of turmoil.
