easy flowing simple work
Lead Quality Inspector (Former Employee), Smyrna, TNFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: simple work
Cons: winter time
most days you were either on the lines checking cars or you were in the back by the break room checking parts that were delivered to the team before they went to the line. You will learn how to more carefully inspect the quality of parts. The management was a little sloppy, but mostly good people. The hardest part of the job was probably whenever you had to go outside in the winter at night to check the quality of the vehicles that have gotten outside. But the laid back atmosphere made it an enjoyable place to work.

Good and huge company, but it is not IT company. Physical work, quality control, count products. Good co-workers and good supervisor.

Good opportunity to make money, High turnover rate though
Sales (Former Employee), Marietta, GAApril 22, 2013
Pros: hours, health insurance, trips
Cons: stress, turnover
If you work as an "account executive" you can expect to be cold calling and trying to establish new customers. They put you on a probationary period of 6 months where you will be paid $12.00 an hour. Once you are taken off the probationary period, you are straight commission, no base pay.

Pros: You make a 34% cut off whatever you sell.

Cons: If you don't sell anything you obviously don't make any money.

I learned a lot about how to gain new customers and sales as a whole during my time here. Management was good, but along with coworkers- there was a high turnover rate. The most challenging part of this position is the stress. If you don't have a second job or a plan B, it can be VERY stressful. The slow times are typically the winter months. My best advice to any new hires- COLD CALL! Try to establish as many new accounts as possible so you have more of a financial cushion. The most rewarding part of my time with ATCO was the contests and the fact that they are always trying to boost morale. They run some great contests with a lot of incentives like money and company trips. Management is also aware of how stressful sales can be, so they are understanding and try to always keep your spirits up. (The company closing at 4 PM everyday is nice too!)

The strategic demolition and economic recovery project served a key component in facilitating the process of assisting homeowners with returning to the hurricane damaged properties, securing assistance with resources and coordinating the rebuilding process.
