    I have been working at Collections Etc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff here is amazing and my manager is the absolute best! I have been welcomed with open arms and accepted as a Winston family member. Working with 200+ associates is incredibly challenging and exciting but very rewarding. When issues arise they are handled with care in a timely manner so day by day I see more and more pros and it's going to get even better.

    Cons

    Some employees, and the surrounding cities, have a bad memory of how Winston operated in the past and it still lingers. Fresh ideas are being implemented to help fix this issue so hopefully we can turn our image around 100%.

    Advice to Management

    Many changes are being made to clean up the mistakes of the past. Continue moving forward and keep up the great work.
