Pros

My hours were great! But there wasn't a whole lot else to report on the company, this seemed to be the on ly positive thing about it.

Cons

The pay could have been a little more competitive for the position. There wasn't a wasn't a whole lot of improvement for advancement within the company.

    I have been working at Jacobson Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It payed the bills if you don't say anything about what you see!

    Cons

    Good ol Boys Club. The company is all full of drunks in upper management. They don't mind a drunk off duty as long as you don't get caught. (I was out and saw current way upper management drunk . You don't even know the drivers they see almost daily) If you are not in the "In Crowd" in drivers or management then no matter how good you do, respected by co workers or can do the work of 4-6 others, your out the door! Stay away from this place, they will not even give an honest reason you were dismissed and mess up any chances for you to find a decent job in the same field.

    Advice to Management

    You have and will continue to run off decent people in management. But I guess that is the way it is now days. Work with good managers and find a way to keep them. Maybe some of the contracts will not always be in jeopardy every year!!

    I have been working at Jacobson Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Fun atmosphere
    - Nice co-workers
    - Understanding and nice supervisors

    Cons

    - The work demanded does not equal the low pay (way under industry standard)
    - The health insurance is a joke
    - Hard work is not rewarded properly during reviews (I work extremely hard and received a $0.10 raise... They may as well have just slapped me in the face).

    Advice to Management

    Your employees, not your supervisors, need to be rewarded. Most of the supervisors sit all day and delegate their responsibilities to us peons. We are the hard workers, so make us feel like it.
