I worked at ACS Services full-time (More than 5 years)
Prior to being purchased by Black Box Network Services, this company had a small family feel, but had a thriving active business. Folks in the Austin location worked well together. Employees were expected to work hard and be efficient, smart, and business saavy. But they were rewarded with 1/2 day paid Fridays sometimes, BBQs on site, Christmas parties with free food and flex work schedules.
Post purchase by Black Box, employees are now just a commodity and number. Team atmosphere has disappeared and so have the luxuries of a small company. Corporate is pretty far removed from day to day operations and impose restrictions that do not fit the original business model.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ACS Services (Austin, TX) in January 2008.
Asked about job experience.... Who you have worked for.
Reasons for Declining
They hire a lot of temps with no knowledge of the job
