    I worked at JK Moving Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will like your job as much as you like your manager;
    Friendly HR staff;

    Cons

    You will like your job as much as you like your manager;
    Very limited parking at headquarters;
    Poor communication and little to no accountability across business units;
    Lots of backstabbing across different business units -- you will be blamed for things that are not your fault because the people at fault were quick to point the finger;
    Upper management gives employees no warning before terminating them, at all levels and tenures;

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to employees more openly and honestly;
    Respect the work your employees do for you;
    Make business units accountable for themselves, especially when they fail to provide support to others on important projects;
    Live your core values.

    I worked at JK Moving Services full-time

    Pros

    There were good days, they were rare, but I remember one or two...
    A lot of like minded individuals in the office and on the crews, all couldn't wait to move on to a better opportunity.

    Cons

    Management. Better groups of people running the McDonalds down the street.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror first when you realize there is a problem.

    Pros

    It's a way to make some money over the summer, especially if you're moving for government offices, where they pay you $3 more per hour.

    Cons

    It's a lot of physical stress and the working hours and conditions can be tough.

    I have been working at JK Moving Services full-time

    Pros

    Company personnel are very friendly and sales team very supportive through the onboarding process. While I have many years of experience in sales, everyday is is something new and old skills aware rekindled and new ones are learned.

    Cons

    Benefits. While the overall package of benefits are good compared to other companies the cost is still high for an individual employee. Mostly healthcare. It is still unreachable and expensive even through an employer. I had to waive it because of the monthly premiums. Not saving anything except for a smaller deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and advocate through industry organizations for better healthcare plans so company can afford to pay for at least the employee premiums for health, life, dental and vision. Very important to attract and maintain good, qualified and skilled workers.

    Pros

    ...where the company core values actually mean something and are lived every day. Everyone around me is trying to make the company the best customer serving moving company in the country. The peer pressure to be excellent is refreshing. Making every customer's experience a good one is the mission. When something happens and a move doesn't go as planned this organization really anguishes about it - figures out what went wrong and implements actions to not let whatever negative experience occur for the next customer. These people really care - and that makes it a great place to work!

    Cons

    Nothing significant enough to rant about here... :-)

    Advice to Management

    The company is growing fast. Processes that are currently informal need to be formalized. However, please make sure we don't lose what makes us special as we expand.
