    I have been working at Plaza Research full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Because of the nature of the business it really utilized all my talents from clerical reception to prior food service skills.

    Cons

    Traffic was a headache to get to and from work. Not company related.

    Advice to Management

    Everything was very common sense oriented. It was a pleasure to work with the nation’s premier network of focus group facilities.

    I worked at Plaza Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laidback atmosphere and management trusts you to get the job done with micromanaging. Good mix of off beat co-workers to keep things interesting.

    Cons

    Sometimes assignments ran out and we were sent home early. This didnt happen often, but when it did, it was challenging considering we all have bills.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying your employees more. The best talent is usually attracted to the best pay.

    I worked at Plaza Research part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working there because of the new people you would meet every day and the new studies that would come up.

    Cons

    I wish people there did not talk behind each other's backs. I believe we need to work together and not against each other. It is a job that is good for a little while but there isn't a lot of room for growth.


  5. "Recruiter"

    I worked at Plaza Research part-time

    Pros

    Great team, managers are very easy to work with. Your responsibilities are very clear and generally you have a good idea of what you will be doing each day. Not too stressful normally. Most calls are warm calls so interactions are normally not too bad.

    Cons

    Work is menial and can be mind-numbing at times. Not much room to grow to a different position. It is a calling job so if you don't like talking to strangers this is not the job for you.

    I worked at Plaza Research full-time

    Pros

    The only pro of this company is being able to say that you have a job. Period.

    Cons

    There are three upper level jobs only. There is zero advancement opportunity for any employee. They treat their employees like they are children with no freedom sitting in a tiny shoulder to shoulder cube working like dogs. Worst experience of my career. You can make more money working for burger king.

    Advice to Management

    Close the Paramus location and move on.

    "One of the worst work experiences ever"

    Pros

    The recruiters in the back office & most of the front office staff were very nice. Other than that, there's not many good things you can say about a place that lets you go after 5 days (which has never happened to me in 20 years). This experience makes me not want to work in an office setting ever again, so maybe that's a good thing.

    Cons

    The girl training me talked down to me most of the time. The girl in the kitchen office barely wanted to help me with anything. Both of them made me feel like a nuisance when I would ask them to repeat something. They assumed I knew every detail of the position 3 days into the job. They talked about teamwork, there was barely any. They also had me fill out "new hire" forms the day they let me go. What company does that? I will never refer Plaza Research's Tampa office to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust some of your employee's attitudes or just fire them. Teach your staff how to properly train new hires because some of them are terrible trainers/ co workers in general.
