customer service (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – December 27, 2015
Do not work this company. They do not provide benefits, sick days, vacation even working 40 hours a week. They reduce hours without pay benefits . It is very politic and race cards. Hopefully they hire new management team. Not do what they say in their business. Lot of customer complaints.
no benefits, unorganized and management under stupid people
Client Operations (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – February 9, 2016
The staff level employees are great and I met a lot of wonderful people during the time I worked there. Middle-management needs a lot of work. People tend to get promoted based on who they know or how long they've been there and not based on if they can handle the job. There is a big disconnect between staff level employees and upper management due to middle-management not reporting actual problems that are going on to cover themselves. There is a lot of favoritism and nepotism. Room for advancement is virtually impossible some departments do not let you leave to work in another department. I think executive level management really needs to sit down and talk to staff level employees to find out what is really going on because they would be shocked. During the time I was there I didn't encounter many people that were actually happy working there most people felt stuck and were very unhappy
Lots of great company swag
Major disconnect between executive level and staff level creating a lot of unhappy employees
Good place to work if you like your current position
Lead Contract Specialist of VIP Reporting (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 21, 2015
Advancement is difficult at best. Almost never any openings. Bonuses are not based on your individual efforts for the most part. However, the atmosphere is great, co-workers always help one another. The work is always fast-paced, but almost never unbearable.
if you're full-time, health/vision/dental benefits are great, hours are consistent
hard to advance, constantly changing systems, unreachable goals for bonuses
High paced work environment with good pay and high risk.
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 17, 2013
On a busy day it is like stepping into a whirlwind. The challenge of auction day is exhilarating. The rules and policies can change from day to day to accommodate the sellers requirements and applicable law. I have learned strong customer service skills as well as the ability to remain fluid in my thinking and work habits. Management is a bit top heavy. My co-workers were smart and capable. I like almost everyone. The hardest part of the job is the fear of losing it. Auction.com has a high turn over rate of employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is the sense of accomplishment of doing your part in closing millions of dollars worth of real properties in a very short period of time, very satisfying.
good pay and benefits, free lunch on auction day. good workload(not too slow usually)
high turnover rate of employees, no toleration of any mistakes even small ones, use auction.com as a stepping stone or it will use you as one.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – September 12, 2012
It has been a nice place to work, in terms of culture and experience. Furthemore, it has potential for expanding into other areas. Travel distance is adequate given that there are two main freeways close by. Management is very helpful and committed to quality. Hours of work are also flexible. With that in mind, it also a hectic at times specially when there quite a few commercial or residential auctions.
a typical day is spent at your desk calling a min of 50 a day. it is very very repetitive. very redundant! the management is a bit unorganized. the bonus guidelines at not clear. the work environment is relaxed. and the people are great.
Onsite Coordinator (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – April 23, 2014
The Job in many ways was very good. Pay and Benefits were fair. It was challenging working an hour from home. My direct supervisor was not very personable and sometimes made me feel uncomfortable. I was also treated as though I was not intelligent enough to complete some projects. She favored my co-worker over me much of the time. I would recommend People Skills training classes for my direct supervisor.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Belmont, CA – June 16, 2015
Auction.com is a great place to work. Management is changing for the better and we are definitely on a trajectory. Non-performers are weeded out quickly and the culture is great. A well established company with a start-up vibe, and many perks. Perks include free lunch, game room, and many learning opportunities.
Free lunches 3x weekly, game room, flex schedule
Little growth opportunities, equity only for heavy hitters
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – April 5, 2014
Where do i start….mid-level management is saturated with incompetent and selfish individuals that don't know a thing about communicating effectively with those they manage. And it seems like every manager is a "director" of some sort and guidelines and business practices became blurred and overlapping. Favoritism is blatant and obvious and the owners could care less about what's going beneath them. There's no formal training manual for most of the positions at this company and it's a battle just finding someone that's willing to effectively train you properly. The only enjoyable part about the job was when the workday actually ended. There is no job security at ADC and the business practices are suspect.
ADC is still laying off people left and right as we speak and the overall the culture and environment is very toxic. Stay away from Auction.com
decent pay and bonuses
short breaks, bad management, mlk holiday isn't observed
Large scale company and it all depends on what your looking for. Great part time/flexible schedule for Auction manager, coordinator and concierge type roles. Difficult to advance/move up if you want to take it further. Most of the best full time jobs are in California, texas and new york.
Regional Manager - Southern California Auctions (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – December 11, 2012
We are an extremely thriving company with constant energy. Because we are growing rapidly we have regionalized our auction department. I currently am working as the Regional Manager over our Southern California Trustee auction area. In any typical day I may find myself in Norwalk, San Diego, Santa Barbara or Orange. We begin our ballroom auctions at 5:30 am from the bottom up, setting a theater style stage complete with a Live Auctioneer and energetic staff, all of which tear down by the end of each evening.
Flexibility and improvisation are learned traits in the auction business. Our auctions can be found at either local city courthouses and hotel or convention center ballrooms.
Run almost entirely by former marines, management of staff and events is concise and seamless. When obstacles occur we come together as a team to brainstorm solutions for current and future issues.
I consider my co-workers teammates in an every changing and active work environment. The employees that are part of my auction crew go above and beyond daily to execute their assigned auctions.
The hardest part of my current job is giving enough attention/assistance to the number of staff in the Southern California crew. There are approximately 100+ staff under my region, all of which have different schedule requirements, skillsets, training needs etc.
The most enjoyable part of my position is working with my team, all of whom give their all each and every day. Formerly, I worked as a high school teacher and truly enjoyed working with so many different personalities. I find it fascinating learning andmore... adjusting to each person's unique training needs, as well as the different forms of encouragement and praise that motivate people.less
REO Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – March 11, 2015
There is no room for advancement within the company. You would have to kiss a lot of butt cheek to move up. Management is horrible, company is a joke, all the executive want more money in there pocket and treated the little guy as dirt.
