    Pros

    Flexible, able to get things done in a large time frame, great for people with weird schedules or students.

    Website almost always having some sort of issue. Pay could be a bit better or different depending on the service order and client

    FIX THE WEBSITE. It's not mobile friendly, and even on the tablets it's not very flexible.

    I worked at Acosta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My PT position grew into a FT one with great benefits, vacation days, paid sick days, and a good number of paid holidays off.

    Cons

    Technology used in the field was very outdated. No reviews or raises. Being chosen as a Walmart preferred vendor, created more pressure, and wasn't the shining trophy it was presented as. Walmart's home office expected the remaining merchandising teams to evolve while their own store employees stayed at the same level.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees that are working in the stores, not just the ones working at the home office. Upgrade the outdated technology.
