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

    Pros

    I have only been at the company for 3 years, the first time as a temp and then full time for two years as an Alta employee. I have had multiple raises based on merit and not just yearly reviews. I totally love the fact that you get continued coaching to do your job better and disagree with the negative reviews about team leaders.
    The CEO is the most down to earth and approachable of any I have worked for.

    Cons

    You have to be with one program for at least a year before you can apply to move into a different one.

    Advice to Management

    Consider candidates with work experience even when they don't have a Bachelor degree.

    I worked at Alta Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I could wear jeans and show my tattoos.

    Cons

    I could not laugh, talk, or stand without permission. Supervisors lack empathy or basic human emotions.

    Advice to Management

    Get better at communication, and having supervisors who aren't biased towards the employees they like. Every time I had an issue it took several days to resolve. The supervisor also VISIBLY favored the employees who had been there longer. For example, I was told to not laugh as often or as loud. I could not stand unless I had to go to the bathroom, and I was not able to talk, so much that I was moved to the back corner with no one to sit by. I was treated as the naughty kid in class for having fun at my job. It was truly a nightmare.
