    Pros

    I was working for both ABC Imaging and FedEx Ground at the same time. I liked ABC Imaging better.

    I didn't really have much of the opportunity to use the machines like I wanted to. I was mainly delivering and cleaning.

    Advice to Management

    I see the managers cared for me, but a lot of them seemed depressed.

    Cons

    Jealous insecure female..
    Favoritism by Supervisor

    Have the patience to look for another job..
    They don't appreciate anyone not even their clients

    Advice to Management

    If u are going to take advantage of the Atwil agreement and fire employees within 30 days of employment at least train them, give them a performance appraisal then fire them. Not give bad excuses to make yourselves look better.

    Pros

    Paycheck but under market value. Good folks to work with.

    Cons

    Management has no respect for the employees, little or no training. Benifits are deplorable cheaper to get your own. No advancement opportunities or pay increase in 6 years. 50 hour work week expected for salary managers no comp time. Run dont walk away from here!

    Advice to Management

    Change everything show the same respect to employees that you show clients.

    Pros

    It's a job that keeps you realizing that you should joined the military or gone to college.

    Cons

    This place is dishonest. Do not waste your time working for this place. They will use you and take advantage of you. What other company has upper management post FAKE reviews? ABC Imaging does. You would have better luck and opportunity working at FedEx Kinkos.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. The word is out that you are corrupt and are slave drivers who manipulate people.

    I have been working at ABC Imaging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent hours. They don't want to pay OT so life work balance is good.
    .
    Location is good. Lots of places good to eat if your ok seeing a lot of homeless people on the sidewalks.

    Cons

    I could write a book. The cons are long. 1) All the good people were fired or left. The people making decisions don't know what it takes to run a print shop and business keeps slowing down as clients are jumping ship even faster than employees.2). Certain people are allowed to work from home and that does not seem fair and is not well monitored. People promoted take credit for other's accomplishments and do not know how to complete a job from beginning to end. Not sure how people got their titles ,,, maybe flirting. 3) ABC allows certain individuals to vape. Vaping is unprofessional in the work place. Why is this allowed? also, I have heard abc employees telling clients to go to the printer down the street. They literally tells people that they thinks have too small of jobs to go somewhere else. With that type of attitude we are losing business because word of mouth is big in pioneer sq and I have heard restaurants talk about how abc "used to be" and how we are now and the used to be is much better but since new mgmt started, thinks have gone down fast. 4) The equipment is so old and outdated. 5) The computers are slow and outdated. 6) No personal printing unless you come in on the wknds so they dont know. 7) No 401 matching 8) Benefits are expensive and not very good. 9) Owner never asks how anything is REALLY going. He blindly trusts that mgmt knows what they are doing when they really does not and is ruining the Seattle abc. 10) Lastly, it has been a common event that a dog is brought into the office and is allowed to sit on the desks. The dog is dirty and customers look at us like we are running a very unprofessional business.

    Advice to Management

    There is a big disconnect from headquarters. I would advise the ceo to look at the numbers and see how even by raising prices to hide the losing of customers abc still is not doing well and he needs to rethink the leadership in Seattle because the word is getting out that abc no longer wants small jobs. We should not turn any work down.
    Noone should not be allowed to "work" from home. Even though that is the only time we can let loose and enjoy each other socially it still seems bad.
    Don't ask employees to write favorable reviews unless they are authentic. I was approached to write a glowing review but had to keep it 100 and tell what it is really like at abc imaging.
    Give reviews and raises. Acknowledge and get to know the workers.

    Pros

    This is a very fast paced environment with a lot of things going on at all times. My coworkers work very hard and have very high standards. Of course that can lead to some heat sometimes, but there is a lot of passion. I enjoy working with people from all over the world and I always learn a lot from those around me. This is not boring! There are some fun things like happy hour, lunches etc.

    Cons

    We do put in long hours sometimes. Commitment to the client needs can lead to extended days.
