    I have been working at Checkpoint Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, relaxed atmosphere.
    My direct manager is great, she has been always kind and attentive to the members of her team, setting up meetings to go over internal affairs so we could all be on the same page and clear any questions we had.

    Cons

    This company was sold last year to CCL, since then everything changed. They announced the company was moving all operations to KY, so most people quit because they could not relocate. Many others made arrangements to travel and relocate just to be told a few months later that the company would not relocate. Just this last week we went trough this again and now they are relocating to NJ. All employees will be out of a job. Really sad.

    I have been working at Checkpoint Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back and understanding enviornment.. good morale practices, paid holidays vacation and sick time. Bonus plan potential.

    Cons

    I have found limited room for growth potential. Not all processes are done the same by all associates which can cause tension.

    Advice to Management

    Make better processes streamlined so people aren't confused.

  3. "Good, but needs improvement"

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Good people.

    Cons

    Lots of turnaround and uncertainty creates paranoia and tension. Management seems too busy to focus. Some employees and management are stuck in old ways.

    Advice to Management

    Seek employee feedback and empower employees to resolve issues. Remove logistical road blocks and make employee's hapiness more of a priority.

    I worked at Checkpoint Systems full-time

    Pros

    Company was one of the leaders in its industry, with a good reputation and winning new accounts from competition.

    Cons

    Product roadmap became stale, more line extensions and less investment in innovation. After acquisition, even less investment. Losing market share to low cost copy-cats. Eliminated marketing as a way to differentiate the brand.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in marketing to help enable profitable growth.

    Now part of CCL; good move for the employees that remained/survived.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits. Company vehicle and company tools.

    Cons

    No set hours. Will require overnight at the drop of a hat. Then ask for more in that same morning. Might get email on a Saturday requesting be on site out of state the coming Monday, then they are upset when it is simply not possible.
    They hire for projects but are not explicit in the hiring process. We were told about the contract and I was told I would stay on for "some service". I cleaned the territory up and utilization went way down. The only way to keep the job would have been to become a constant traveler.
    I was glad for the downsize. Took the money and ran. Mgr wanted me to be a subcontractor for them. I was and remain, not interested.
    The company has since been sold and is no longer a stand alone operation, I hope that has helped improve things for anyone still working there.

    Advice to Management

    Realize field service is, at times and in places, a retainer style job. There are going to be employees with low utilization if you want to keep your customers pleased and secure in the knowledge they can get solid service and support after the sale.
    The way things were when I was employed, I would not recommend anyone apply to work for this company.

    Pros

    Flexibility! Awesome employees! We are truly family. Since being acquired there have been many changes, that was to be expected, there are new policies but not bad policies. Good things are coming for the employees.

    Cons

    Cannot move up or broaden your experience unless you have a college degree. Added work since layoffs of many. Sales down but high energy to get back up.

    Advice to Management

    Current employees need to have the option to grow without so many limitations.

    I have been working at Checkpoint Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked at CKP for a very long time (too long), the place was like family. Over the years there was allot of misguided leader ship that sent the company down the wrong path. Recently there has been allot of good positive change, starting to see more of the family based grass roots of the old place.

    Cons

    Plainly said-- company doesn't pay

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better, you'll keep talent around.
