    I worked at LGC Associates full-time

    Pros

    none, its a circus, office staff poorly trained and unprofessional.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no communication. There is not enough staff to properly run a business. Our contractors do not take us seriously but why should they? Were put up in run down offices, we have 1 person running each office when there needs to be at least 5 to do things such as answer phones, deal with out contractors, deal with our vendors, do the on boarding, doing the interview.

    Advice to Management

    Add office staff, allow for better office space for a respectable business. This is hospitality and we look like the office of every other pyramid scheme scam.

    I have been working at LGC Associates part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free lunches, easy to apply and quick process, the staff are helpful with finding he job locations

    Cons

    dishonesty, long hours, low payment, no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    I am sure the person who reviewed LGC as a Turkish company was wrong. Lack of knowledge and misunderstanding. I recommend to everybody just to be honest about what they write about. And it's pretty much depends on your choice, you pick the location where you go to. I admit though, the low payment was the reason for leaving LGC. They are rich company with poor management. But anyway whether my review post online or not,...

    Thank you for the feedback! Pay for certain positions depends on a couple things: your skills and experience, the job location, and the agreed-upon rate that is discussed with our clients when they work with LGC. Before taking any position at LGC, pay should have been discussed with ...

    I worked at LGC Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    the coworker (notice I didn't say coworkers).

    Cons

    1. Lack of basic management structure - There are no performance plans. There are no formal reviews. Every week I asked if I was doing what I needed to be doing, correctly and thoroughly. I was told I was doing a great job - only to get laid off due to "budget cuts". Let's also add that you hired someone two months later, but okay. 2. Expect to make the same, if not less than your employees (cooks) make. 3. No...

    I have been working at LGC Associates part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When they're good...they're pretty good. But, you never know when they're lying.

    Cons

    This company tells its branches to LIE LIE LIE to their employees all the time. Frequently the pay is wrong. They lie about the hours you'll be working. They lie about telling you that you're required to be some where at a certain time and then they do not pay you for the time you spend waiting around even though they're supposed to. If you're a reliable employee who shows up on time and ready to work and who the...

    Advice to Management

    If you didn't have temps, you literally wouldn't have a business. You need to tell your branches to stop lying to your employees.

    Advice to Management

    Believe the people that work for you. And in Jesus name establish a relationship with your employees the ones that work out in the field not the ones that work in the office but the ones that are out there doing the job and getting you paid.

    I worked at LGC Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I met my best friend while working here and enjoyed the team I worked with. That’s about it!

    Cons

    Corporate is a joke and never have any idea what’s going on in any of their branches whatsoever because they’re too busy sitting on their high horses in Indianapolis trying to find new ways to scam their employees out of pay. Which brings me to my next con, pay is an even bigger joke! They expect you to stay past 5p (I came in at 7:40a, and on average didn’t get to leave till 6p) so at the end of the day, you’re getting...

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company especially this branch .

    Cons

    Management is a mess. They promise moving up but it is not really an option. You are never off the clock. Even when you're not getting paid. Not really 40 hr. Will send you home as early as possible every day.
