    I have been working at Vonachen Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful supervisors, friendly co-workers. My supervisor helped me advance into a much higher paying area of the company and then helped me advance into another even higher paying company. Jobs well done always reconized.

    Cons

    Lower pay scale in the beggining

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better incentives needed.

    Pros

    A few good AOM and ROM staff that are not afraid to help. Decent money for what it is.

    Cons

    Micro management everywhere. Many company secrets from employees. Sales staff is not very helpful. Administration has no idea how things work in the field. Long hours due to paranoid upper management. No original ideas of how to run a successful company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find good people and let them help you. Micromanagement from above does not help. Often times problems are created from management and serve no purpose.

    Former Employee - Night Janitor in Peoria, IL

    I worked at Vonachen Services part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked how flexible hours were, my manager was pretty lenient and helped out when possible, if you didn't do what was required and it showed, than you were held accountable.

    Cons

    training for my account was approximately (3) 3-hour shifts and then i was on my own, a little terrifying at first but I got the job done well, had monthly inspections and only missed slightly on one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train more managers to be like C. Gibler, he was awesome and was a great role model for his employees and the company.

    I have been working at Vonachen Services full-time

    Pros

    The work is simple and what can be expected anywhere. Colleagues are overall very helpful when someone is in need of help. They support each other and truly put the team first.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth, or any perks to speak of, but the variety of insurance benefits and vacation makes these positions stand far above the rest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees not at them. Remember that when one person takes advantage not everyone will and chopping everyone off at the knees equals no workers.

    Pros

    Balance with home life is fantastic, great administrative staff, upper management appreciates work you do and are very loyal, company values are great, we care about the customer, lots of creative freedom

    Cons

    A small disconnect between admin staff and what the people out in the field have to do in their daily work day, hard to get staff that have been doing the same thing for years to adopt new ways of doing things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communication flowing between admin staff and the field

    It was a great beginning, then it turned into a company I did not want to work for.

    Pros

    Very flexible with work/life schedule, but it also depends what part of the company you are in. HR Department is very good and friendly workforce.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement and growth within the company. Lack of communication between senior level management and the employees. Compensation is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more open communication to the entire company. This hinders everyone's performance if everything is kept a secret until the very end or after the fact.
