    I worked at Acosta (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in your schedule, you work on your own.

    Cons

    No pay raises, no bonuses, no "way to go, good job!," no incentives to make you want to worker harder.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises! Treat emp Moyers with respect. Recognize employees who go that extra mile.

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers! Management is passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. No opportunities for advancement. After multiple rounds of team layoffs, the few left standing get to do the work of many.

    Advice to Management

    Pay quality employees what they are really worth! They will respect that and will show loyalty and commitment to the job!

    I have been working at Acosta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers are more like family than business partners. Family oriented workplace. Kids sick? No problem. Have to leave an hour early for a recital? Enjoy!

    Cons

    Salaries of people who have been here for awhile are not fair when compared to newcomers. It's sad to see people who have been loyal for so long make less than someone just starting the same position.

    Advice to Management

    While you may pay newcomers well - it does get back to those who have been here for 10+ years. Adjust the salaries of the loyal employees so they don't feel taken advantage of.

    I have been working at Acosta part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with scheduling, relatively fair pay for amount of work put in.

    Cons

    Dependent on stores schedules, holidays become busy.

    Advice to Management

    Find out which employees are the most valuable, give them pay raises based on amount of work done. I work twice as fast as some people and rarely take breaks, others spend half the time on their phones.

    Pros

    Good team, very flexible, good benefits, not too much stress, ability to attend important family events and
    Work around it,.

    Cons

    No raises ever, if you get promoted you get max 2-4% raise, which means a lot of difference among people with same job title.
    As team do not get raises we lose good associates very often, and are constantly training new associates.

    Advice to Management

    Provided merit earned raises, it's wrong to hire new associates off the street earning more than who is training them. This doesn't motivate people and drive them to be less productive.
