Former merchandiser/installer (Former Employee), Arkansas – May 5, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: very bad management. don't believe what they say- keep a backup plan.
I worked for this company and was sent to St. Louis for a 3 day job. Was left stranded in 100 degree with no hotel room! If they say they'll pay for a hotel don't count on it. If you have car trouble and photos and garage bill to prove it they will fire you anyway. Very bad management. This company was a lot better before current managers took over.
Retail Specialist (Current Employee), Tampa, FL – January 14, 2014
A typical day at work was going in early and setting up for the rest of the employee. When they got there I would take one employee with me and tell them what my boss told me to tell them then I would pull product to set displays and planograms. I did what my boss told me too. I filled out all the paperwork for him. and the hardest job was taking anchors – more... out and moving the aisles and putting anchors back in, I also enjoyed that the most. – less

Finance Student Advisor (promotion) (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZ – October 7, 2013
Pros: co-workers and happy students
Cons: lack of motivational leadership
Assist students with their finance options for school and continued support throughout their program through phone and email contact with some face to face contact. Assist internal customers. I have learned different financial aid policies as well as other finance policies for attending school. I have learned what not do to in leadership positions. – more... My co-workers are all very much team players and want to assist each other to make sure the students are taken care of. The hardest part of my job is working with leadership that is not interested in improving the job satisfaction and does not take responsibility for the lack of satisfaction across the company. The most enjoyable part of my job is when students I have been working with for a long time call me to tell me they are almost done and are so excited to be able to improve their career with the degree they just completed. – less

A typical day at work includes placing and receiving calls to potential students, enlightening them on our core values and programs, that lead to enrolling and supporting them from enrollment to graduation. Management is always willing to educate and help advisors. Co-workers make our work environment family-like. The hardest part of the job is watching – more... students fall short of their goals.
