Place sucks
Residential driver (Former Employee) –  Pierson, MIFebruary 11, 2018
Horrible management always make up rules everyday to try to make your life harder. If you fall behind you never got help from management to get your route done. Pay is horrible for what management wants you to do. If management gets yelled at management take it out on their employees/crew because they don’t do their own job expect drivers to do it all for them.

None

Terrible place of employment
Sorter (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALFebruary 11, 2018
Terrible atmosphere, the management is corrupt. They don't comply to osha regulations as far as their employees being certified on machinery. No room for advancement. 10 hour shifts with only one 15 mintute break with a 30 min lunch break.

Over the last 2 years the company has changed its sales culture .
Growth Rep (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKFebruary 11, 2018
The company has consistantly made changes in our pay structure and the market we are allowed to sell to. They now look at sales as a expense instead of revenue producing. Upper management is not intune with sales because all of them come from a operations background. My typical day was to cold call on 20 to 25 accounts and try to earn their business.

Pros

Stressful
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCFebruary 7, 2018
They dont pay you enough for everything they want you to do. I felt like I was running the whole company. They stick together and always put me in the middle of grown up drama. I literally just waled out and never returned.
Pros
Had my own office
Cons
They treat you like a child

in the beggining great benifits
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDFebruary 5, 2018
when I first started, there was a small amount of employees then as the years went on there was more and more employees hired and we took on more of a work load than we could handle, as the superviser started to have personal problems, the superviser took problems out on the employees. the superviser was great friends with the general manager so there for, the employees had no one to go to and talk too. several employees were so unhappy with the way the company was run that they quit. If you were on the supervisers good side then you were treated well.
Pros
good gettogethers at times
Cons
way to much stress and bullying

Blame game
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Auburn, MAFebruary 2, 2018
Company has old equipment and horrible management. They will try to blame all the problems on anyone but them. The real problem is not enough help and they constantly threaten you about your job. They have you fill out loads of paperwork that they don't look at just to cover them when an accident happens. If you decide to work for this company you have to watch yourself and know if they can blame you they will.

Not many

General manager at the end had no morals.

Large company with a lot of money but red tape too
Manager (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 30, 2018
This company has over 35k employees. Corporate life is filled with red tape and limited opportunities to make things happen. Action is driven from many layers above. Management is required to take leadership training however a limited amount are held accountable or measured on how they are managing their people.
Pros
Nice people. Subsidized lunch. Some work from home programs. Good salaries.
Cons
Bureaucracy. Lack of control. Too big to move.

Quick Transitions
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  New Brunswick, NJJanuary 29, 2018
Your job description changes every year and with it your yearly compensation. The company constantly tries to find ways to get the employees to do more while changing the pay structure so that you earn less.
Pros
Lots of freedom due to Management
Cons
Always in fear of losing money

Mismanaged
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJanuary 29, 2018
This was honestly one of the worst job culture environments in which I have ever been. Constant micromanagement. Recruiting Manager is more concerned with process than results. Talent Acquisition in constant opposition to Operations and HR. For instance Recruiter not allowed to cancel a req upon request of the Hiring Manager and/or HR. Recruiting will force them to hire. No consistency in enforcement of policies. No travel. Not allowed to physically meet your hiring mangers. Really not much like any recruiting job I have ever had. Horrible experience.
Pros
$5 subsidized lunchs
Cons
Constant negative micromanagement
