    I worked at 1st Choice full-time

    Pros

    There are NO PROS WHATSOEVER ...

    Cons

    EVERYTHING GOES BAD AT THIS COMPANY.

    Advice to Management

    It's very simple. Learn to treat people the way you want to be treated. The unprofessional environment needs to come to an end. This place is one of a kind. I NEVER ever seen ANYTHING like it in my entire career. Management including CEO is absolutely a total nightmare to be around. The CEO and the sales dept. are really hurting the business in every way. Absolutely no respect for one another. This place has a high turnover rate. No one is ever happy here. I strongly encourage you, and now you have been forewarn. Please don't do it to yourself...don't work at the corporate office or as a contractor. Every department from sales, and esp. the payroll, and accounting dept. is highly disorganized. You will be surprise of the many things that can go wrong, goes wrong. Lesson learned...the day of my interview, I should've follow my initial gut feeling, which was not to work here. Never go against your intuition. You are doing your self a disservice.

    Pros

    Flex work time early in the office early out. No real onsite checks. Independent workers dream. Must have strong ethics

    Cons

    Poor representation never met me personally wouldn't know me if they saw me but paid my time sheet. No leave or vacation until you do one year service. Keep your word about promise made in the interview about possible being permanently hired by Govt. Keep your word about training and development

    Advice to Management

    Know your employees.

    I worked at 1st Choice full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a lot of food places to select from. Also 7 Eleven is across the street.

    Cons

    Management is driving that place down! Its not the CEO, its the lady that works under her. I will not use names. This should be the your very last option. Not a good place at all...if you can, looks elsewhere. These people are so full and caught up with gossip they have no time to work. Simply Terrible!!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the person who you let run the place when you're not there.

    love to gossip
    don't like to work
    brown nose
    then this is the place for you-you have found your home

    They don't know how to treat their employees
    this place has ABSOLUTELY NO CORPORATE VALUES WHATSOEVER
    Without a doubt the absolute worst- everyone can do better than this

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage by going to business school ,better yet get out of business
    Learn how to RESPECT people
    Learn how to treat people

    I worked at 1st Choice full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There weren't many pros connected to this agency at all. They can get you a decent salary with some Federal agencies but wprking through them is the absolute worst.

    Cons

    The worst management ever imagined. Communication is non existent, they have no management skills whatsoever and their business ethics is deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management with actual business experience and not your friends.

    Pros

    Going through the process of submitting my application and completing my tests i received all the help i needed and all of my questions were answered by Ms. Murdaugh. She was always pleasant and very knowledgeable whenever i called the office. If i sent an email she was quick to reply and i appreciate all the help she gave me as well as the rest of the staff.

    Cons

    It would be nice if they offered a stipend for the metro. I inquired about it but i was told not at this time. I hope they are working on it.
