    I have been working at Amspec Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay/benefits, lots of free time. The company is continually expanding.

    Cons

    Irregular work hours, no steady work flow (for the smaller branches). Sometimes it is very busy, other times there is no work for days. Also difficult to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of current employees before spending money opening new branches. Keep your employees happy to avoid high turnover.

    Pros

    Job started well then everything went downhill.

    Cons

    Management only cares about their favorites or family. Will talk down to you & not appreciate all the work you do. Took away holiday pay without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to talk to your employees & not treat them like crap. Don't intimidate them.
