Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – July 9, 2017
If you are looking for a part-time job this is ideal. Just don't expect many jobs/hours. Expect to have to figure things out on your own when it comes time for jobs. Be careful not to ask questions you expect a an actual answers, most answer are uniform.
Unfortunately, this company is in deep trouble and has had lay offs, pay cuts and time cuts. Those who weren't let go have left the company. Owner's treat their employees as dispensable and do not give raises and chances for advancement are slight.
The only benefits offered are health insurance, vacation and sick time. No retirement plan.

Assisting the CEO and clients with day-to-day needs. Organizing the transitional living and outpatient office supplies, day-to-day operations, schedules, etc.
working with the clients and larger community associated with the business
Employee (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – April 18, 2016
It's a good company to start with, but does not offer competitive wages or room to grow. Promoted managers in the company have no experience and treat people like they are rats. The manager in QC yells at her employees and tells them to not talk to anyone outside of HER department. The company has the potential to lead the retail market, but is limited because of their narrow focus on market trends, communication, and technology (i.e. CAST mobile app consistently breaks down and requires updates that have not been tested). Again, think twice about working here.
Co-workers offer helpful information and training
Your pay at day 1 will remain your pay. No raises.
Overall, working for Cubic was a good experience. There was a lot of trust that management had in their employees, mainly because management wasn't around all the time. It is a contracting job so there isn't really any job security. It's definitely a great transitioning job for military service members who are either retiring or getting out early.
I did learn a lot of leadership skills mainly because, I was put into positions where I had to make desicions on the spot. It can be hectic at times but it's nothing to some one who has military experience.

I worked independently and fast paced which is great. I learned something in every location. Better techniques, faster routes. Overall experience with this job is great. Only downside was that theres no downside
