Call Center Representative (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – February 1, 2014
I was very excited to work in a call center environment and needed to make money as quickly as possible. After a brief and quick hiring process communication between myself and the call center started going downhill. It was hard just to get licensed and trained, and when expecting to finally landing a shift I was told to come in on different days. Eventually – more... the call center building had lease issues laid off employees because an agreement was not made. The only way I found out was because I drove all the way out and discovered a "closed for business" sign. Nobody from the established told me anything and left me in the dark. Now I do not look forward to working for any call center as most are unorganized and do not care about the people that work for them. – less
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee), Alsip, IL – November 12, 2013
A typical day required shipping, packing, inspecting that orders were right for shipping out. Management was good, not much supervision while working so it was a challenge I was prepared for. Working with no supervision gave me responsibility to meet quotas. My co-workers were nice and hard working and helpful at times. The hardest part of the job was – more... meeting quotas on time but it was a task that had to be done. The enjoyable part was working with such nice co-workers. – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Mount Laurel, NJ – May 6, 2013
Pros: easy to understand and maintain
Cons: dull work environment
ARI was a good workplace. During my time there I helped many of my coworkers with their workload and also carried my own as well. I never dealt with customers directly but the drivers of the vehicles of the customers. ARI is a fleet management company that outsources for major companies the repairs needed for the vehicles the company owns, i.e. Cable – more... companies, UPS, etc. I learned a great deal from ARI about how the process for fixing a vehicle for major companies. I also learned the companies unique computer system which helped me connect drivers with mechanics in a very timely fashion. I loved how easy the job was. The only thing I didn't like was the love other's had for their job. People seemed depressed. – less
IT (Former Employee), Mount Laurel, NJ – May 6, 2013
Pros: high longevity among majority of employee base. gentle style among many employees.
Cons: difficulty adapting to younger or more modern ideas. some managers are abrasive, exhibiting behaviors of feeling threatened.
Long term employees experiencing much change. Primarily operational and administrative services company. Strong emphasis on training the longstanding workforce. Mostly tactical planning and execution, not tied to an overall strategy in some areas. Excellent at service delivery for customers. Willing to go the extra mile for many clients. Experimenting – more... with some global expansion. Difficult for new outsiders to join, introduce ideas and make an impact - very tight knit long term "in-group" thinking and behavior: established ways of doing things are seen as already 'best in class'. Male dominant leadership with women in supporting roles - limited opportunity for women leaders. – less
