Flexible if you need a day off but doesnt follow hand book
Janitorial Worker (Current Employee), Racine, WIMay 25, 2015
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: everything else
People can just not show up for days and still have a job. The handbok says we get paid holidays and get benefits but I have yet to be paid for a holiday, bank any vacation time, or been given my log in to sign up for benefits even though I've been there a year.

Forklift Leadsman (Current Employee), Bellwood, ILMarch 31, 2015
The management was not easy to get a hold of. The job itself was very easy. i drove a forklift and maintained a small crew. i did learn to drive a forklift, and the rest of the crew worked together very well.

Productive and fun place to work
Stores Clerk part time (Former Employee), Lafayette, INMarch 13, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Very nice place and a good group of people I worked with. I had a very good boss, who is now demoted due to someones error.
Which is confusing.
The work was not hard, just hot in the summer.
Management needs to be more understanding on some things and not twist rules.

Productive workplace
Janitor (Former Employee), Shawnee, OKFebruary 17, 2015
A typical day at work was to get my cart ready. Push my cart and barrel down my section of the school and clean any entry way, bathroom, hallway, bathroom, classroom, etc. Management was great and the job was too but to work during the night shift I couldn't handle it. The hardest part was definitely the fact that you had to be up all night every night but besides that fact it was a easy and simple job to do. Co-workers where amazing everyone that I worked with or met there where friendly and understanding, even the higher up people would get along and work with you on things.

Very unprofessional
janitorial (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALDecember 29, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: unprofessional, pay, poor communication
This entire company is a joke. They over work you, hold out on your pay, there's no room for advancement, no recognition for great workers, there's no confidentiality even with managers, they refuse to go by the handbook, change rules daily and If you don't do their dirty work and scheme on other employees you're fired. Not to mention they write you up unknowingly with false reason and you'll know nothing about it until you're already fired. This company is ran off of lies and I would not recommend my worst enemy to work here.

Horrible, one of worst companies ever worked for.
Laborer (Former Employee), Lima, OHNovember 12, 2014
Pros: breaks and co workers
Cons: everything except breaks and coworkers
Management is horrible, corporate is horrible, both are way outta touch with their employees. So outta touch that the site manager dont even follow company policy on attendance, because he can barely get employees to show up. When other companies come and visit the site, Lacosta employees are not allowed to be seen. We are treated very badly, lied to, and way under paid for the workload and commitment – more... they expect. Raises, benefits ,and advancement here is nonexistent, and no matter how committed and hard working you are they still treat you horribly. The attendance policy is a joke, it takes 6 weeks to earn an attendance bonus of less than 100 dollars. Also yearly contract renewals make job security not so secure. This company is just a horrible company to work for from corporate to regular employee. – less

Just a job don't expect no real benefits or advancements.
Janitorial/Maintenance (Current Employee), MichiganJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and interacting with the clients, working alone
Cons: management, pay, work load
Management is horrible and is out of touch with employees and seems to be no communication at all. They have you do to much work for what they pay you for and its not worth it. And seems to screw over employees and never acknowledge the good work that you put into your work or assignments.
