    I worked at R.A. Malatest & Associates as a contractor

    Pros

    Flexible hours and great co-workers.

    Cons

    No health benefits. It cannot be relied on as a sole source of income because it is contract and can get cancelled at anytime. The company hardly pays for travel expenses even if the job site is located outside the city the person lives in.

    Advice to Management

    The company should always pay the travel expenses if a person has to travel outside their city to get to the job site.

    I have been working at R.A. Malatest & Associates as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    for my job as an interviewer, I got paid well. above $13 per hour to do short surveys

    Cons

    I was sent to different locations and I worked outdoors which I've never done before so it was a cool experience for me but I'm not so sure how others are able to deal with that. I did work under hot sunny conditions.

    Pros

    The staff are great to work with, if you are on time and do your work it is your basic job. You have flexibility to work as much as you want or as little (although they don't really like that). A good job to get yourself busy

    Cons

    The breaks are short, the pay isnt great but it is what it is.

    I worked at R.A. Malatest & Associates part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment was busy but supportive.

    Cons

    At the time, the headsets were cumbersome and made dialing difficult.

    Advice to Management

    I know that layoffs are inevitable, given the client list "seasons," but it does help to keep laid-off but interested employees in the loop, not just in terms of coming back. Note: the question below has an incorrect answer: I worked for RH Malatest from January to July of 2009.
