  1. "Miss the steady Monday-Friday 7-3"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Guaranteed Returns

      Pros

      Steady schedule, decent pay above minimum wage, opportunity to learn, if you do your job and mind your business it's a pretty good place to work.

      Cons

      Raises not always reflective of effort, coworkers gossip and can be very catty, distinct culture difference between warehouse and office reduces morale

      Advice to Management

      Don't cut corners, put the employees first and don't treat people like prisoners. You can be secure without being irrational and learn to trust your employees and reward them for honesty. Also, you have to be honest to expect honesty

      I have been working at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I believe the company is moving in a new direction to include better organization, updates of website, technology and communication, but they are not there yet.

      Cons

      Outside positions are 1099, so no benefits of health insurance, 401 K...

      Advice to Management

      Be clear with expectations and provide support for those initiatives.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Hours on the day shift; my immediate supervisors and manager. A regular paycheck (when Payroll didn't screw up) and free coffee on breaks (when machine was maintained). Made some good friends.

      Cons

      Front-office and warehouse cultures are too different (country club vs. jail). Surveillance and multiple daily searches make for a paranoid, miserable atmosphere. My coworkers congratulated me when I was leaving.

      Advice to Management

      Treat warehouse workers with respect; improve pay; increase opportunities for advancement.

      Doesn't Recommend
      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Guaranteed Returns full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The warehouse day shift schedule (7-3) and a steady paycheck.

      Cons

      Very strict work conditions, extremely few opportunities for advancement. A complete disconnect between the warehouse and front office. Great relative discrepancies in pay for similar job functions. Low rate of pay, considering the specificity of procedures and possible exposure to medical and hazardous substances. Widespread low employee morale.

      Advice to Management

      Better rates of pay and more thorough training, More opportunities for cross-departmental and upward mobility.
