    Pros

    The office atmosphere is great! Most people in the office are very friendly and professional. The work is interesting and the pay rate is decent.

    Cons

    Pros

    Job Title sounds like an important job, and that may just help you get a real important job at a different company.
    A lot of overtime available...so far. (They have been hiring many people so they won't have to pay overtime). If you get $14/hr and you work 4 hours overtime everyday for a year, you can make 50k. Might be worth it for some people, definitely not for everyone.

    Cons

    It's basically a data entry job, don't let the title fool you. The pay is low, not a job for college graduates. There are around 30 other people doing the same thing as you so seniority is going to play a big role in promotions. They start you at around $14 or $15 per hour. And you get like 2% raise each year, so you do the math. You will have to put in 4+ years just to get $1 raise. There are other reviews here that proves it could be worse than the example i gave you. At these kind of pay, a single person cannot survive since rent alone is around $1,000 + utilities for a studio. This job is for kids living with parents or for people with a significant other that is making the big money. How does the company get away with paying so low?
    They hire minorities(some can't even speak proper English) who would otherwise have a hard time finding a job. If you are a white person, don't bother applying to Sr. Entry coordinator positions at the LA/Torrance (soon to move to Gardena) location because they have filled these low level jobs with minorities. Great move by the senior management at the HQ in Memphis. They can claim to be a equal opportunity employer saying they have this many minorities in the company and this many minorities in management. But if you look deeper into the company, you will see the minorities are at the very bottom in job level and pay. The higher you go, the whiter it gets. They have minorities in management positions at this LA locations, but these supervisor/managers are just puppets. They have no authority over anything. All the decisions are made in Memphis. Again, don't expect to come in a get a promotion anytime soon. Prepare to put in years at these wages since there are already many people in line ahead of you.

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations on a smart business strategy of hiring minorities and paying them below industry average wages. The company saves money and gets a good name for being a good employer for minorities. However, having over 90% minorities at a location might be a little over the top. It's obvious what the company is doing and it doesn't look good especially when they are paid below industry average. You have employees with MBAs working at $14/hr. Reevaluate salaries, especially now that California's minimum wage will be $15/hr.
