    I worked at CA Short full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at C.A. Short because of the family like atmosphere. All of the people were friendly and I enjoyed going into work everyday to see my fellow employees. I feel that there was always room to grow with the company and build a career. I was able to cross train and learn different departments to see where I would be the most beneficial to the company. I agree with the mission of the company and the fact that...

    Cons

    While I was able to pick up on things quickly, I would say the training could be better. I do know that they are currently working on this and have some great things coming to the company in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to keep providing positive reinforcement to the employees when they are doing a good job.

    I worked at CA Short full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits. Ample paid time off.

    Cons

    Owners try to use fear and manipulation to get workers to work overtime. Employees are threated on a daily basis. It is a toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you treat your customers- with respect.

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at CA Short full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Pretty good company in the industry of corporate awards.

      Cons

      I felt like an outsider.

      Advice to Management

      Company Motto - "People Are Everything", really?

      Pros

      Casual dress attire, employee engagements are nice

      Cons

      Antiquated System. The system is in need of major updates

      I worked at CA Short full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      None. For a company that allegedly sells "employee engagement," there is none at CAS.

      Cons

      I second what all the others on Glassdoor have written about what a horrible, backwards and demeaning environment this is.

      Advice to Management

      Fire yourselves. Close down before you're forced to go out of business

      I worked at CA Short full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Up front, they seemed to be nice and friendly. The hiring process was very easy.

      Cons

      The company seems to be very conservative and not LGBTQ friendly

      Advice to Management

      I was "let go" from this position because I was accused of saying something to a female coworker. The person that fired me did not know what specifically was said and he said that my firing came straight "from the top." The only conversation that I recall having was with a female coworker about relationships when, when asked if I had dated anyone recently, I told her that I was bisexual and had recently seen a guy, but...

      I have been working at CA Short

      Pros

      Working remotely, well taken care of by management financially and emotionally

      Cons

      It appears they have needed to get rid of dead weight....which is now happening

      Advice to Management

      As long as you take care of those that are genuinely taking care of you...no advice at this time

        Negative Outlook

        I worked at CA Short full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Free coffee and parking, not a whole lot more. Could possibly add that it's low stress, but this might not be a pro considering their customer facing website and database are consistently ablaze and nobody seems to care.

        Cons

        Old school company with a few well tenured, firmly planted individuals that have created comfy positions for themselves. Because of this, lots of favoritism and nepotism going on. Very little investment in employees, equipment, training, or simple things like office supplies. Don't expect any of the modern day perks. You'll feel as if you've been time warped back to the mid-90's. Their flagship software is about as slow...

        Advice to Management

        Sending out corporate email blasts each time someone walks or is escorted out is very tacky, unprofessional, disrespectful and not very decent. You claim to be some sort of leader in the employment engagement industry, yet you are the worst example of such a thing. Also, think about maybe bringing in some decent IT management, someone capable of pulling in the level of talent that can create a product/system that your...

          I worked at CA Short full-time

          Pros

          Working remote opposed to being in Shelby, North Carolina was a big plus

          Cons

          If you're a salesperson, skip this position. There were literally 4 new sales managers that were in and out in only a 12 month period while employed here. A typical day is cold calling with zero qualified leads provided to new salespeople. Notice the shifts in management along with the complete disregard to apply the principles they sell to their own staff. They have zero employee recognition internally, so how...
