No opinion of CEO

Pros

lots of time to study. Great job to have if you plan to go to school at the same time. pick up hours at any site if you're okay making minimum wage.

Cons

Worst job ever. no opportunity to grow in the company. your pay will stay the same throughout your time with them, no raises. Supervisors only make 25-50 cents more.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nothing really comes to mind other than the fact it was a 4/10 schedule giving you 3 days off a week.

    Cons

    First off, you are expected to drive all over the place. They don't reimburse you for gas mileage until you reach mile 60 in a day. Convienently, all your sites require you to drive 59 miles or less in a day. Secondly, the paychecks are mailed to you from Georgia, so you are constantly at the mercy of USPS to get paid as they do not offer direct deposit. Also, to get vacation time, you have to work there for 2 years and then you get something like a measly 3 days. They are not flexible with scheduling at all. They throw you here and there with no regard to sleep or family life.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees better, get direct deposit, start paying for gas mileage, and offer some real benefits to working there.

    Pros

    The only pro is that this company will hire ANYONE! As long as you are somewhat literate, and can count to 10 they will give you a job.

    Cons

    low pay, no help from the branch office, lost paychecks, understaffed 90 % of the time, no advancement opportunity, poor scheduling, no sick pay, poor benefits package
    This company offers a vacation check and opportunity to take a vacation after two years, however, if your site is understaffed, forget your vacation. They don't like OT. God forbid you get ill, as this will cause them OT, and could cost you your job! They like to write you up for EVERYTHING!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get out of management because you are doing a TERRIBLE job!
