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

    Pros

    Ease of hiring
    Placed with a big company
    Employee contact person was relatively easy to reach

    Cons

    Recruiter lied about pay
    Recruiter lied about vacation days
    Recruiter lied about "furlough days" that is days off without pay, 21 days/year, not fun at all
    Recruiter lied about working environment and reporting structure at job
    Benefits are lean and expensive
    Only 5 days vacation per year - the industry standard is 2 weeks
    Applicant needs to see all these details in writing before accepting an offer!!
    Bartech has been sold to a much larger conglomerate, so expect a lot of disconnects.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people
    Pay needs to be higher to match industry standards, or you'll only get desperate applicants who can't find anything better.

    Flexibility to work from home, giving you a good work/life balance

    A management team that is focused on fixing any issues that arise and making the daily operations run as smoothly as possible

    An excellent support team that aid in the recruiting process, such as posting jobs on sites like CareerBuilder and helping in the onboarding process as well as answering questions from current employees.

    Cons

    The industry contains a lot of ups and downs and requires focus and attention to detail as things can get hectic from time to time

    I worked at Bartech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working from home, work-life balance. Insurance is ok and decent vacation.

    Cons

    When I took the job there, I wanted to be there long term. Since they've been acquired, they've seemed less and less like a family and more like just a job. Never had a 401K match, low pay, no tuition reimbursement. There's no well-placed benefit working there that you cannot receive elsewhere. Management finger points, plays favs, and was outright disrespectful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how you treat employees. The morale and culture there is gone (ask the people not just what you want to look at through your own eyes). People are talking and word gets around. Change was needed but this one wasn't for the benefit of the staff. Start looking into what you can offer that other companies cannot (working from home is something others are offering now...).

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    There is a lack of training, passive aggressive leadership, and little room for growth. There is no work/life balance even with working from home. You are expected to meet unrealistic expectations, which leads to 10+ hour work days.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better training system.

    I worked at Bartech full-time

    Pros

    working from home / work life balance

    Cons

    This is definitely a kiss butt company. Management is so cut throat. If your not in their click they will make sure you fail.

    They always sided with the individual they liked or was clicked up with when it came to submitting a candidate, regardless of how great of a candidate you had. They make you use your vacation time when your out sick.

    This company was the worst I've ever worked for. No room for growth. No training opportunities. No education reimbursement. No 401K. They don't care about you just their numbers.
