Worked well with different personalities
Credit and Collections Representative (Former Employee) –  Industry, CAMarch 18, 2014
Daily Collection Calls, Learned to work well with all types of personalities including customers, hardest part of job would be back billing customers for no service and customers and negotiate with customers on paying high balances. I enjoyed working with my co workers, they had different personalities, but I managed to get along well with all of them
Pros
self motivated - worked alone without much supervision
Cons
lack of training

Allow you to learn about trash
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Industry, CAFebruary 10, 2014
It is a company that offers job security and great benefits. However, the room for advancement is very limited and influential. It is a family owned company and that allow employees to feel a sense of active participation in the way business is running.
As far as management they are a FEW managers that are amazing and value/support their employes opinions. Other managers have a lack of employee value and help only the employees that they want to help
Overall is a good company to work for, good benefits, they work around your schedule and nice co-workers. However, if not the kind of place that allow you to advance in the corporate ladder.
Pros
nice co-workers and benefits
Cons
lack of advacement

Established company with old school work ethic.
Sales (Current Employee) –  IndustrySeptember 25, 2012
It's a catch 22 when working at Athens Services. They have a old school managerial structure and the work/life balance is not non-existant, especially if you are young. Career progression can be non-existant and the typical office politics can get in the way of you advancing up the corporate ladder. However, you will have job security and if you can commit the time and work hard, you will be commended.

If you are a recent college graduate, this company is not for you. You dont want to stuck there for 10 years doing the same job. Look elsewhere.
Pros
job security and company expansion
Cons
benefits, no work/life balance, out dated systems and old school managerial style

Great organization to work for with growth opportunities.
Growth Representative (Current Employee) –  Montebello, CAAugust 6, 2012
A typical day at Athens includes cold calling comercial business, Meeting with customers to position Athens advantages and solutions to potential customer. Phone calls and signing business. the culture is very much a hunting sales culture. Management is great at supporting their staff with tools to help win accounts in a competative market. The team at Athens is very much a family. The most enjoyable part of this job is the opportunity to meet different people as you strategically market your specific territory. The hardest part of this job is the constant change in their commision structure and the lack of commision structure with new accounts in industries they have not serviced in the past.
Pros
you manage your own time. the ability to volunteer at the many community events they have.
Cons
commision structure and the very expense insurance plan.
