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

    Pros

    Pay is based on experience. Health insurance is free for employee and family! Through HealthNet. It's a non union workplace. 55 hours a week.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    I worked at Athens Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay as long as they don't keep changing the commission structure. I think they change the commission plan more often than the oil in their trucks.

    Cons

    Too much turnover. Instead of proper training, they kill momentum by firing good potential talent. Service lacks which makes selling difficult. Management does not trust employees. There is favoritism and inside snitches. Watch your back or you will be next to get a pink slip.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid hiring your management staff from the local AA meeting.

    Pros

    Stable company. Payed every week.

    Cons

    Sure u can progress, so I've heard, u have to kiss the right butt and have connections and if ur like me and don't like to do that then your screwed. Seniority means nothing. No sick pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding with the employees and their request to have certain days off we have families.

    I worked at Athens Services full-time

    Pros

    nice employees only, the staff is great, everyone has a great attitude, they take care of the drivers very well on top of them being a family owed

    Cons

    Vacation time is a joke, you can only take it the month you got hired, they dont pay for sick., once they get all the knowledge you have from that company and they lay you off, they are so known to do that. I have meet so many ex empolyees and thats what they said too. After i trained two depts, they descided they got all the info from me and time to say goodbye... Not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Growth potential and job security - well established, family owned business. Athens Services promotes from within and compensation is generally competitive.

    Cons

    My personal experience is that the owners are completely unforgiving if you make a mistake in your personal life. No matter what you have done or shown yourself to be for many years, once you get into trouble they will turn their backs on you and never give you an opportunity to discuss the situation.

    Advice to Management

    I will refrain from answering this item.

    Pros

    This is a family owned business and is a solid company. Somewhat recession proof. I worked there for over two decades and they were always good to me. There is room for advancement also making it a very attractive choice in employer.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything to say in this arena. The experience was great for me and it is a very professional environment.
