    "Terrible company."

    Pros

    If you come on time and don't call out you will have a job.

    Cons

    No pay increases. You have to butt kiss to get any type of promotion. Hires ex-convicts with no backgroynd checks. Management is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who kiss behind all day.

    Pros

    No micromanagement. Given tasks to complete and was allowed to complete them it whatever way I though was best. This allowed me to work much more efficiently than if I was required to do it the "right" way.

    Cons

    I'm fishing for something here, so I guess that minimum wage was not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work environment

    I have been working at GCS full-time

    Pros

    The company is a "body shop" so they don't have much staff, they provide workers to other companies as sub contractors.

    The people are good overall, the corporate group is easy to work with and do a good job.
    The benefits are solid overall. Medical is good, but 401(k) is only ok. They put a flat 2% above your salary, but no match. Salary is good overall. Vacation is good. Sick time and vacation are lumped together so you functionally get an extra week of vacation.

    Cons

    No cohesion. You rarely get to know any actual GCS employees apart from those on your contract.
    Within GCS itself you don't seem to have anywhere to go upward really.
