    I worked at LTD Commodities full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Available overtime on holidays. Decent co workers. Learning experience. Opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Very strict on time. Was 6 seconds late off break and was taken aside and talked to. Just be on time you will be okay but it's still a pain compared to other employment.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of coworkers and me included didnt enjoy working a 12 hour shift without the extra break. Pretty sure it is mandatory for us to get that and it does go a long way, especially on busy days.

      I worked at LTD Commodities full-time

      Pros

      Associates really care about each other and try really hard to help each other out.

      Cons

      It’s amazing that one person could single handedly destroy a department. No support from management or upper management when presented with problems. Management is well aware of issues yet nothing is being done to support the team members that are affected. Problems within the department have been presented to higher ups for months and still nothing has changed. Associates have no voice and feel helpless and unappreciated.

      Advice to Management

      Be professional, consistant and show some integrity! Back up your associates and don’t always look to pass the blame for your own terrible decisions.

      Pros

      The hard working hourly employees who genuinely care about the job!

      Cons

      Pretty much everything else. Senior management cares very little about the individuals who are doing the work. They have caring fun individuals who show up on time, use to love their jobs and created great work , and they just let it go to hell. They ignore any complaints about the senior management even when HR is involved. They have a demeaning attitude toward those in lower positions. Add unrealistic and constant...

      Pros

      The other sales agents were cool

      Cons

      Literally the worse place I ever worked at. Waking up in the morning filled me with absolute dread and the best part of my day was going home. The customers are the worse people on this planet; rude and cruel and evil and i wanted to do nothing more than tell them off. never talked to stupider people. If you ever wonder what descending down into hell is like just work at the LTD call center for a bit. Management isn't...

      Advice to Management

      Stop acting like you're above your employees. You're not. You're working for the same dying company in the same nasty cold building. Show some human compassion.

      Pros

      Many of the agents were helpful and nice.

      Cons

      Too much gossiping by management staff about agents to other agents in the open where remarks can be heard. Lack of communication and direction when being trained for your job, you are on your own when you go to floor to take orders .

      Advice to Management

      Clean up your own act before critizing others.

      Pros

      Weekly pay checks Nice co-workers Nice trainer

      Cons

      Seasonal. To loud in there, people are practically on top of each other 10 minutes away from phone only, this is not grammar school. To get something to drink it will take you 5 min alone. Have to work 1 weekend day every week Parking is horrible, have to park 4 blocks away

      Advice to Management

      Stop monitoring people going to the bathroom or grabbing a drink or coffee, no reason to treat people like kids.

      Pros

      Employee's really care about the company.

      Cons

      Given the recent purchase of LTD, the family mentality of caring about employee's is no longer evident.

      Advice to Management

      While the NEW Management team stated they would observe the company/employee's before making any changes, it appears the observation was from a far distance. Many honest and devoted individuals were impacted by this change (majority of them were middle aged women). Change is inevitable, but at least walk the talk (do a thorough review) and then if you decide to make changes at least be upfront about it and provide...
