Pros

The pay and benefits are unmatched for comparable jobs. Insurance (health care, dental, and vision) is available for all part time employees, regardless of how many hours per week they work. A 401k program is available for all employees who have worked there for 11 months and are over 21. Management encourages a positive atmosphere through their attitudes and by being selective with the people they hire. They expect a lot of their employees and the employees get a lot in return.

Cons

I can't think of anything really negative. No company is perfect but TCS is really good to their employees and customers. In my time there, I had no complaints. If you aren't interested in working hard and don't want to put more than a minimum amount of effort into your job, then you probably won't like it.

Advice to Management

Thanks for a great experience!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The employees are hard working and great at what they do, yet don't last long.

    Cons

    Company philosophy is one sided, as it only benefits the company, not the employees. To survive we must be willing to do any and every job there is, including lifting heavy boxes in the middle of the night or at the crack of dawn, depends on your schedule. If you are truthful about your availability you run the risk of being terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to why the employee turn over at the Lexington Ave. store in NYC is so high. Great people have left, in fact 100% of the store managers left in 2008.
