    I worked at AlphaGraphics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was a job to go to and get paid. That was about the most positive aspect other than the time I was about to deliver for this company and meet new people while delivering. However, some of the clients were extremely rude when I delivered for this company and I had to deal with a rude supervisor...

    Cons

    Some of coworkers were out for themselves and mistreated others. My supervisor was extremely petty and mistrusted me. I did not like my supervisor nor did I like one of the general managers. They were hateful and I tried for years to get another job. I was hoping to advance in the company, but that never happened. I felt like I was lied to and I did stay with the company for almost nine years. I am surprised I stayed that long. I was definitely underpaid...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and dignity, especially those who have worked with your company for at least eight years! Offer career advancement opportunities...
