      Training did not prepare you for calls

      Mar 11, 2021 - Call Center

      Pros

      The trainers and staff were friendly and understanding

      Cons

      Training went really well and I thought I was gonna do great but I had issues with every. single. call. And the resources I had to help either took too long to find or weren't what I needed. The help line was never available, always busy and the system would freeze up on me. It was so stressful and I felt incompetent (and I'm not at all, I work in IT for my FT job!)

      Big Company in a Small Town

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great health and time off benefits. Lucrative deals at employee sales.

      Cons

      Small town means internal cliques and preferential treatment. People aren't necessarily promoted or hired based on their merits. Career ceiling is limited in certain roles.

      Pros

      Great leadership. New CEO has big shoes to fill, but seems to be doing so amazingly. This company is stable, excellent gain sharing, and genuinely cares about it's employees. I'm excited to see the path that the new CEO helps lay out.

      Cons

      A little old school. Not as progressive as some of the competition.

      Good & Bad

      Jul 10, 2020 - Material Handler in Madison, WI
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great, seasonal job and way to make good $ around the winter holidays. Incentive pay can be good, if you qualify. Flexible - if you need changes or time off, they'll work with you as much as they can -- but they really can't be very flexible during their busiest time (Fall/Winter). Generally, friendly environment.

      Cons

      If you work there year-round (not seasonal), you are still called "temporary" even if you've worked there for years. There are people who've been there 5-10yrs who are STILL classified as "temporary full-time employees". This means no paid time off and no vacation (though at about 3 years you start getting paid for national holidays). There are 401k and (really expensive) health insurance benefits though.
