Operations Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Danvers, MA – April 11, 2016
Day starts with paper runs and receiving packages. Scan packages in and deliver packages to individual. I enjoy working with a few co-workers but management is almost non-existent. Hardest part is dealing with the headaches of the management who wont listen to any ideas or procedures outside of their own. The contract I work for I thoroughly enjoy the people of the company we are contracted out to.
(Contractor) - Carpet Technician (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 27, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of the people who worked CONSTANTLY having to pick up the slack for those who chose to NOT to work.
I learned that, at least at THAT company, that it didn't matter how hard you worked. There was a general sense of favoritism shown to certain members of the so-called "Team". It was proven time and again that those who chose to goof off got more breaks (if you will), than those who actually came to work and did their jobs.
My immediate supervisor was great. She got in there and worked as hard the hardest worker there, as did the manager above her. He could be counted on to help out whenever needed. Now, the account manager, was a joke. For example, the whole team could have seen a problem (any problem), we would bring the problem to his attention, and that's where the "buck" would always stop. Another thing that bothered those of us who worked at night, was the blatant favoritism he showed the people who worked during the day. To my way of thinking, you cannot do that, and expect to have a "harmonious" work environment.
My co-workers were pretty good people. There were a few "bad apples" who made things difficult for the rest of us now and again, But for the most part, I really didn't have many complaints.
More oft than not, a lack of communication between upper management and the employees tended to be the hardest part of the job.
DTZ was contracted to clean the USAA building in Colorado Springs. And to me, the most enjoyable part of the job, tended to be the interaction between myself and some of the USAA employees.
No Micromanagement, benefits
Insufficient pay, poor communication at times, certain workers who didn't work.
(Temp) Client Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 1, 2016
Overworked stressed out staff, poor old and outdated infrastructure including constantly broken down equipment needed to perform job. Unprofessional management, non supportive and unapproachable. A bully-like culture where only select few employees were invited to office parties and lunches. Expected to work overtime often without compensation. Nightmares and loss of sleep as result.
Overall it was a Great place to work and gain experience
Lubrication Tech/Millwright (Former Employee) – Memphis – October 18, 2015
Pros: I started out as a sanitation employee and work my way up to a lead millwright position in 5 years. They really do reward hardwork and spend a lot of time and money training employees. They do a great job of promoting from within the company.
Cons: Pay was not all that great and management isn't always upfront and honest with employees. They tell you what you want to hear.
Promotion from hardwork, Training, good people to work with
Pay is low compared to other companies. Inexperience management
great company to work with. hard work and determination really pays off with this company. this company invest lots of time and training into their employees. you can start on the bottom of the ladder and leave a highly skilled/ highly marketable employee.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – August 4, 2015

Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 30, 2015
A typical day at work for me would consist of me making sure the women's restrooms are clean and restocked properly. What I learned from this job was that its better to work alone and get the job done than with a team (very unorganized). There's a lot I can say about management but what I will say is "new" management is not always the best route to take for a company. It seemed as though things got worse with new people in charge. Not just for one shift but for all shifts. I enjoy working with my co-workers and my supervisor is the best!! She looks out for her crew. The hardest part of the job is when your in the midst of trying to finish up a certain task and get called on the walkie talkie to go and do something for management (when they are free and could do it themselves). The most enjoyable part of the job is when your co-workers try their best to make sure everyone doesn't allow the job to stress you out.
