    I worked at Alta Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Alta Resources was like family to me. From a Great Director, Team Leaders ( who care )and wonderful Co workers. We worked hard and played hard. It was my honor to have experienced such a nurturing and TEAM environment. Leadership listened to the front line employee to always better the process for our customers, clients and employees. It was a pleasure coming to work everyday. Really felt I had an impact. There are not enough adjectives to properly describe how Alta and the Reebok division positively effected my life !!!!!! If you ever have the pleasure of working there.......work your tail off. It will pay off !!!!! Leadership always feed us. The Director actually cooked us breakfast himself one day .

    Cons

    Pay could be much better.

    I worked at Alta Resources full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    In short, Alta is a fun environment, full of really great people working hard for a man who exemplifies corporate greed. He does not care about the people who’ve helped him become the extremely wealthy, albeit conservative beyond measure, man that he is today. He cares where his next $1MM is coming from. Period.

    Cons

    Pay is incredibly low, bonuses are non-existent. Incentives equivalent to pennies. Lacking in integrity, offering a mere fraction of what the client pays Alta for the job you are doing while keeping up to three quarters for themselves. And because the pay is so low, often times that same employee is working an additional job or two simply to get by. Annual increases are provided, but are incredibly low, are predetermined, and are not at all representative to the work you do - a “generous” 1.5% for all is the mentality here. HR created salary scales are extremely disproportionate, again ensuring Alta is keeping every single possible penny for themselves. Along with a small client team, I worked to grow a well known e-commerce platform from $2MM in annual sales to $88MM in annual sales over four years. Alta compensated me for that amazing growth and achievement with pennies each year, totaling a pay increase of $1.08 across all four years. One might think growth of $86 million would justify some kind of recognition, but not here. They don’t celebrate successes. This is hands down the worst company I’ve worked for in terms of compensation, incentives, retention, appreciation, gratitude, recognition, and acknowledgment. In a world where so many employers show gratitude so well, and so often, it would be a challenge to find a company who would appreciate you less! Stop wasting your time here!

    I have been working at Alta Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay was one to two dollar above minimum wage

    Cons

    The Supervisor did everything in her power to make me want to quit. We weren't given scripts to go off of on the section of the company I worked on and one employee described our situation like headless chickens running around. An uber driver who pick up a person who worked for Alta describe a girl coming off work crying and complaining about Alta Resources...It was dehumanizing to work there.

    Pros

    Steady employment, if your team or the company (you represent within Alta) you are working for leaves you can move to another team, if the person you work for wants you move to someone else's team.

    Cons

    If your manager doesn't want you to leave they will keep you on their team, and at times make you suffer because you are looking to move or looking to advance yourself. There are rouge managers that will do their own thing against the direction upper management direction. At times this will be done for the managers personal gain.
